NASHVILLE, Tenn. (WTVF)  — Several high schools have moved their football games to Thursday night before the remnants of Hurricane Laura move into Middle Tennessee.

The storm is now a category 3 hurricane but is expected to become a category 4 before it makes landfall. As the storm moves inward, Middle Tennessee could see one to three inches of rain and some storms. Read more here: Hurricane Laura could bring 1-3 inches of rain, storms to Middle Tennessee

The weather threat has prompted several schools to move their football games from Friday night.

So far, the following games have been moved to Thursday:

  • Gallatin vs. Station Camp
  • Hendersonville vs. Giles County
  • Green Hills vs. La Vergne
  • Coffee County vs. Tullahoma
  • Ravenwood vs. Blackman

Henry County High vs. Beech High School will be played either earlier Friday afternoon or on Saturday. A decision is expected on Thursday.

The Friday night game of Fairview vs Ripley High School was canceled and will not be rescheduled.

Fairview school officials said fans can get a refund for their tickets through GoFan or can receive credit for next week's game against Cheatham County.

Editor's note: A previous version of this story listed Henry County vs. Beech Grove as one of the games moved to Thursday. That has since been corrected.
