Black Friday Not as Nice as Thanksgiving


High, thin cirrus clouds started moving into The Shoals around Noon on Thursday, and they will continue thickening through the night. These clouds are ahead of a cold front that will come rolling through the Valley Friday, and it will bring some significant changes for us through the weekend.

Temperatures will be slightly milder tonight with the canopy of cirrus clouds overhead; expect lows in the mid-40s with a light west-southwest breeze. A jacket should be sufficient for the weather after midnight unless you are expecting to have to stand in line for a long time; in that case, cold natured folks should have a little more to keep you warm.

Showers will hold off until after sunrise, but some communities could be a little wet at times between 6 AM and 1 PM as showers move through the Tennessee Valley. Here’s a close look at the weather from 10 PM tonight to 12 PM Friday.

The high on Friday afternoon will be in the lower 60s, and then temperatures will tumble quickly after the sun sets. We will wind up around freezing by Saturday morning; Saturday afternoon’s temperatures will only warm into the mid-40s with a northwest breeze at 10-20 MPH!
