Friday’s chance of rain is not exactly zero, but it is low.
A batch of tropical moisture spreading north from Hurricane Hermine interacting with a slow-moving (practically stalled) cold front nearby brings in a low chance of some spotty showers and isolated thunderstorms Friday afternoon and evening mainly over the central and eastern parts of Alabama.
Temperatures drop into the 80s for daytime highs Friday afternoon, and we expect fair weather for most high school football games this week. The better chance of any showers at all Friday comes for areas near and west of I-65: Cullman, Morgan, Marshall, Blount, Etowah, Cherokee, Jackson, and DeKalb Counties. Even then, the chance is relatively small: less than 20%.
The Labor Day Weekend forecast is dry and hot, and it gets much hotter again next week! More about the long-term forecast, the drought, and Hermine is here on WHNT.com and in the forecast section on Live Alert 19.
