RAIN darkens Iron Bowl forecast

Rain is now in the picture for Saturday’s Iron Bowl. According to James Spann’s forecast at alabamawx.com:
SATURDAY/IRON BOWL: Unfortunately, this day looks wetter and wetter. Both the GFS and the NAM show a large mass of rain across the state on Saturday, with some potential for thunder down in South Alabama. The GFS suggests at least 1/2 inch of rain Saturday for this part of Alabama. So, for the Iron Bowl, we will have to forecast a cloudy sky with a good chance of rain, and a kickoff temperature in the mid 50s, near 54 degrees. Rain gear will be needed if you are going to the game in Tuscaloosa (kickoff is at 2:30 this year).
