A strong cold front will move across Alabama on Friday morning. This system is not going to help with the dry and drought conditions. Expect clouds and spotty showers into the afternoon, and then it will become partly cloudy. High temperatures will be around 80°.
Friday evening will be partly cloudy, breezy, and cooler with temperatures in the 70s for the high school football games.
