·1 min read

Sep. 5—The Chattahoochee river was pouring with life Labor Day weekend as the threat of heavy rain backed down just long enough for guests to enjoy a day on the water.

The natural brown tint of the river had colorful spots afloat up all over, as guests kayaked, tubed, and paddle boarded down the river under the cover of sunlight pushing through the clouds. Geese wandered about and joggers sped by on the surrounding trails, as people took the chance to stretch their legs and enjoy some outdoor time before the bad weather returns.

Rain with the potential for strong storms will move in as the afternoon turns into evening, with a flood watch in effect until 8 p.m. for Cobb County, according to AccuWeather. Tonight will see drier conditions, with cloudy skies, a low of 70 degrees, and a 25% chance of precipitation.
