(WAFF) - Skies will be mostly cloudy Friday morning and will remain that way throughout the day. Isolated showers will be possible with steadier rain ongoing to the west, but that line of showers should break apart to some degree as it heads into the Valley.
Scattered showers can be expected, but the more widespread rain holds off until this afternoon and evening, which is also when the chance for thunderstorms is the highest. Although some stronger storms this afternoon could produce wind gusts of 30-40 mph, the threat for severe weather is low with this system. Friday highs will be unseasonably warm again, topping out near 80°.
The heaviest rain shifts into the Valley after 10 p.m. and continues overnight into Saturday. Steady rain is likely for Saturday morning, but those showers should taper off heading into the afternoon. It will be a cool day with highs staying in the low-to-mid 60s and cloudy skies.
If you're heading to Tuscaloosa for the LSU game, you will definitely need to bring along the rain gear, especially if you'll be tailgating. Scattered showers are still possible at kickoff, but any rain should diminish as the game progresses.
