The National Weather Service is predicting a 50 percent chance of “light” rain for the evening with temperatures that might dip to 45 degrees.

“(Temperatures) will struggle to get out of the 50s on Friday for the high,” Columbia County Emergency and Operations Director Pam Tucker said. “It will be breezy with wind between 10 and
13 mph and a 30-percent chance of rain during the day.”

County officials already had advised concert-goers to bring rain coats since umbrellas won’t be allowed.

The park will be closed to the public today until gates open at 4 p.m. The show starts at 6 p.m.

Reach Donnie Fetter at (706) 868-1222, ext. 115 or donnie.fetter@augustachronicle.com.

Even with cold and rain, I

Even with cold and rain, I think the decision to not close the road thus allowing and even encouraging people to gather outside the gates will prove to be a huge SNAFU! If it isn't, next time I'll save the cost of a ticket and watch the show from the "squatter's" area.

Don't most modern digital cameras come equipped with a digital video-recording feature? I mean, really. How are the police supposed to enforce this government edict?

Wow....no umbrellas either! I

Wow....no umbrellas either! I sure hope it is worth it for those who camped out for those tickets. I heard several people mention that Lady A was only playing a 45 min set??? That, for me, is hard to grasp. This is home to two of them. Does that matter?
