Swing low, sweet temperatures

Swings and other forms of exercise came quickly back in vogue Wednesday as area residents enjoyed the outdoors for a change thanks to unusually cool  temperatures.

Wednesday highs only reached into the lower 80s across North Alabama, according to meteorologist Chelly Amin with the National Weather Service in Huntsville.

Amin said a cold front that passed trough the area this week would keep high temperatures under 85 into the weekend, with record low temperatures staying in the middle to lower 50s at night.

Temperatures for the weekend will remain cool, Amin said, but only because showers and storms will move into the area.

Residents can expect normal temperatures and humidity to return next week.
