Winter holds new record as the wettest


Part of the weather station at Posey Field in Haleyville includes a motor aspirated radiation shield to help keep the sensitive machinery from being exposed to radiation.

WINSTON COUNTY - Throughout the years, weather records are continuously being broken as unusual temperatures, rainfall amounts and other weather phenomena occur. Most broken records are minor, usually within one or two degrees of a record high or record low. What is major, however, is when the big ones come through, and this winter in Winston County over the last couple months has received status as the wettest ever recorded.
