The weather will be mostly clear and cool for the high school football games with temps falling from the 60s to the 50s. Gusty winds could impact the passing and kicking games, with gusts still above 15 mph in some spots around kickoff.

Weekend Outlook: We will have beautiful weather on Saturday in the wake of the cold front as an area of high pressure builds into the Southeast U.S. It will be mostly sunny, and breezy. It will actually be warmer since there is not any cold air behind the front. High temperatures climb into the upper 70s to lower 80s. This will be perfect weather for football and tailgating! Get ready for a chilly Saturday night with lows in the upper 40s to lower 50s.

A trough of low pressure will move across the state on Sunday. This will bring us clouds and slightly cooler high temperatures in the lower 70s.
