The Next 24 Hours – Saturday
Showers finally faded away on Friday evening, and although we do feature a 20% chance of rain on Saturday, don’t change your plans just yet. There are a lot of things from youth league football to the Courtland Air Show happening on Saturday, and we have mostly good news here! Expect a partly to mostly cloudy sky throughout the day; that will keep temperatures a little lower. Friday afternoon’s highs ranged from 82º in Crossville (AL) and Valley Head to 87º in Huntsville, Decatur and Muscle Shoals. Saturday won’t be as warm, but it’s still going to get up near 80º by mid-afternoon (especially if you see some sunshine).
For college football games around the region, here’s what you can expect!
