Spotty showers are possible throughout the day on Saturday but become more scattered by the afternoon to evening hours. Highs will range from the 70s to around 81 degrees in the Valley. The Vols are on the road to Florida, so in your I’m All Vol forecast there is a more scattered coverage in storms Friday during the day in Gainesville and becoming more isolated by the evening kickoff.
