Huntsville, ALA – Memorial weekend is here! School is out and it’s time to plan for some much deserved rest and relaxation. Here is a look at the forecast through the weekend. If you are travelling, the forecast looks good if you heading south toward the gulf coast. Expect a mostly sunny to partly sunny sky Saturday and Sunday for central and south Alabama including the gulf coast.
