(WAFF) - Britain voted to leave the European Union after a bitterly divisive referendum campaign, toppling the government Friday, sending global markets plunging and shattering the stability of a project in continental unity designed half a century ago to prevent World War III.
Friday is the kick off of a very big week of celebration and commemoration at Redstone Arsenal, as the base turns 75 years old. There are several events planned for the week of celebration.
Areas north of the Tennessee River and to the east of I-65 stand the best chance of seeing rain Friday morning. These storms have also been quite active from a lightning stand point. By mid-morning Friday, we should be dry with a mix of sun and clouds. Temperatures will warm up quickly and we continue our First Alert for heat index values around 105 degrees as well as a round of potentially strong storms this afternoon.
