There is a concern on whether area high school football will be played on schedule this week or not.
The remains of Tropical Storm Harvey are to impact the area by Thursday and on into Friday.
The National Weather Service in Huntsville has reported the possibility of five inches of rain to come to the Tennessee Valley. Spin off tornadoes are possible too.
Vinemont's administration and head coach Stephen Robinson are staying on top of the latest conditions and forecast. The Eagles are to play the Good Hope Raiders Thursday at Mark Smothers Stadium in the Robinson debut.
As of currently, the game is still set for the final day in August.
Showers will not be a problem for the teams to face one another. Storms with lightning included, will cause delays or rain with gusty winds that make it unbearable for players, cheerleaders, band, fans, etc to endure.
Rain is to continue into Friday with the current percentage at 50 percent.
Coaches and administration from West Point, Addison, Holly Pond and Cold Springs are watching closely since they host a game on Labor Day weekend.
Pending on rainfall, field conditions, etc, there could be games moved back to Saturday.
That would cause an issue as far as people planning to attend or watch college football games, plus youth football games that are scheduled.
The possibility of postponement would also be dealt with by WKUL Radio. The station is set to bring Good Hope-Vinemont on Thursday, plus Hanceville-Addison on Friday, if the weather cooperates.
No games on either day will not be available for broadcast on Saturday with 92.1 FM committed to the Atlanta Braves and the Auburn Tigers. The Braves play an afternoon game at Wrigley Field, while the Tigers kick off the 2017 season at 6:30 p.m. on the plains vs. Georgia Southern.
Those associated with sports through a school system, do become weather watches. Many have been following the death and damage in Houston, plus the Texas coast from Hurricane Harvey.
It prompted the college football game between LSU and BYU to be moved from Houston to the Louisiana Superdome. The Astros and Rangers are playing their baseball series in St. Petersburg, Florida while the Houston Texans and Dallas Cowboys will meet at AT&T Stadium in Arlington.
Wet conditions are possible for SEC games in Auburn, Oxford, Hattiesburg, Starkville and Murphreesboro. As long as no lightning is near the stadium, the games will go on. Alabama and Florida State will play under a roof Saturday in Atlanta, the same for LSU and Florida, with Texas A&M at UCLA Sunday night and Tennessee meeting Georgia Tech Monday in Atlanta at the new Mercedes Benz Stadium.
All the situation becomes is wait and see and hope.
