Wednesday was the tenth day with highs in the 80s in the Tennessee Valley for the month of October. Thursday and Friday will be eleven and twelve. After that, look for a cooler weekend forecast. For Thursday, we reach the lower to middle 80s again. It will be a fantastic afternoon for everyone!
Rain chances increase Friday afternoon and evening. Be prepared for a soggy ride home from work. We can’t rule out a thunderstorm along the cold front. Rain totals aren’t impressive though one storm can still drop a higher rain total for some.
