Cobb County weather: Dry Monday, tough commute

The weather is comfortable in Cobb County this morning, but the commute is not

Drier air has ushered in lower humidity, Channel 2 Action News meteorologist Karen Minton said early Monday.

This is all thanks to Tropical Storm Chris, which is off the east coast, but not expected to impact Georgia, Minton said.

But with the dry weather, comes a tractor trailer fire on I-75. The early morning vehicle fire was out by 6:30 a.m., but the damage had been done, with the northern lanes of the interstate shut down north of Wade Green Road. 

Monday’s high temperature is expected to reach 90 degrees, Minton said. Rain chances return toward the end of the week.
