DES MOINES, Iowa — The heaviest of the rain will fall Friday morning. In the afternoon and evening we have the chance of redevelopment of isolated scattered showers and weak thunderstorms.

Therefore, if we see rain showers during football games Friday evening they will most likely occur at kickoff and during the first half of the game. Rain jackets and rain boots would be a good idea to wear outdoors for Friday night.

As we head further into the evening hours, the chances of rain will decrease. The second half of high school football games Friday should be dry with mostly cloudy skies.
