Football Friday Cold-Front: Varying Conditions
A strong, but slowly moving cold-front is currently creeping into the the western sections of the Tennessee Valley bringing a steep drop in temperatures. This will set the stage for a chilly night for football in some communities while others will see mild conditions through fourth quarter. It all just depends on where the front is relative to the stadium.
Many areas west of I-65 may spend the most game in the 40′s with a chilly north wind while central counties begin somewhat mild with temperatures then falling quickly into the upper 40′s by the fourth quarter. Far eastern areas will likely not see temperatures begin dropping significantly until after the games are over.
We’ve also seen scattered showers throughout the day. They’ve been sporadic and mainly brief. While most of the rainfall has dissipated, a few more showers will be possible, so light rain gear along with cold weather clothing will be a good idea tonight.
