The Next 24 Hours – Another Football Friday!
High school football gets cranked up again late this afternoon and evening, but this time, there is a decent chance of some scattered showers or even an isolated thunderstorm. In weeks past, we have had a small chance of a shower here and there; Friday brings a 20% to 50% chance of some scattered showers to the Tennessee Valley, but the good news is most of the rain that falls will be light. Less sunshine and a few showers here and there will keep temperatures a little cooler on Friday. Instead of middle and upper 80s, most communities will only warm into the upper 70s and lower 80s by mid-afternoon.
The best chance of getting appreciable rain is in Southern Middle Tennessee, The Shoals, and the far northern edge of Alabama. Farther south, the chance of getting more than 0.25″ drops off considerably: down to about 20% in Cullman, Albertville, and Gadsden. So, while a few spots are going to get a decent downpour, most communities will not get enough rain to really have much impact whatsoever on high school football.
Showers will continue to be an on-again, off-again threat through early next week. Be sure to check out the extended forecast on WHNT.com Weather for a detailed forecast discussion!
