Good Chances for Rain
Throughout today and tonight, there will be between 30 and 40 percent chances.
1. Cobb DOT Meeting. The Cobb Department of Transportation is set to host an informal information meeting about truck friendly lanes and operational improvement to State Route 6 (C.H. James Parkway). Today's meeting is scheduled from 3 to 5 p.m. at the Threadmill Complex at 5000 Austell-Powder Springs Road in Austell. Apologies again for saying in yesterday's Five Things Today that the meeting was scheduled for Tuesday.
2. Local Voices. We had three great Local Voices posts yesterday: one by Myra Coker Crawford on remembering her dad, who passed away two years ago; another by Crystal M. Consonery on how to balance your family life with all your activities; and another Terri Foschini about a Marine shipping out for a five-year tour of service.
3. Weather. The forecast from the National Weather Service shows between 30 and 40 percent chances for showers and thunderstorms throughout the day and night. High: 80/Low: 64
