Plan for rain and pack the rain jackets and ponchos if you're heading out to a high school football game this evening. Some of the games may have some passing showers or thunderstorms through the first quarter. Showers and storms will be fewer for the second quarter, and we should be dry for the second half. The bleachers may be wet, too, so you might want a towel to dry off your seat. The good news is not everyone will get rained on, but showers and storms will be around so be sure to plan for it.
We're on the threshold of the weekend, too. If you have yard work to do, mornings are your best chance to find dry periods. Showers and thunderstorms will be scattered about the area during the afternoons and evenings. The chance for rain will stay high through Tuesday, but that doesn't mean all day rain on any day. It also doesn't mean everyone will get rain every day.
A cold front stretching from North Carolina to Southern Middle Tennessee becomes a stationary front from Northwest Alabama to Southwest Tennessee. That stationary front will get a shove to the south and will move through East Mississippi and West Alabama next Wednesday. Unseasonably cool weather will follow. We will mainly feel that cooler change next Thursday or Friday. It's worth a mention that COOLER doesn't necessarily mean COOL. We will still be warm, though we won't be as warm.
