Tropical Storm Harvey laying a wallop on high school football schedules this week

High school football Friday has turned into a three-day weekend.

Tropical Storm Harvey made another landfall Wednesday morning in western Louisiana, and the storm is forecast to move northeast for the next three days.

Rainfall from the storm is predicted to spread across the Charlotte region Thursday afternoon or evening, continuing through Friday. Andrew Kimball, of the National Weather Service office in Greenville-Spartanburg, says 2 to 4 inches of rain is likely across the region.

In addition to the rain, strong thunderstorms and even a few small tornadoes could develop Friday in the area.

That forecast has sent schools scrambling. There are six games on the schedule for Wednesday night and 18 for Thursday, including the Union County game of the week between Weddington and Porter Ridge. And on Saturday, Sweet 16 No. 1 Rock Hill South Pointe will play rival Rock Hill at 11 a.m.
