It won’t rain all day or every where, but the radar is going to be active with rain and storms at times the rest of today and tomorrow. Rain chances today and tomorrow are in the 50-60% range. We are also seeing more clouds than sun and that is keeping our highs in the upper 70s to mid 80s. Rain chances decrease Sunday as drier air moves into the state. Sunday look to be the best day of weather this weekend with more sunshine than clouds and highs in the low 80s.

And, UAB will host Louisiana tomorrow evening in downtown Birmingham at Protective Stadium (6:00p CT kickoff)… much like Auburn, a shower can’t be ruled out during the game. Mostly cloudy conditions with temperatures falling from near 80 at kickoff, to mid 70s by the fourth quarter.
