Good morning, Decatur and Avondale Estates. Here are 5 Things to know about today.

1. Weather. Cloudy with a 70 percent chance of rain in the morning, 50 percent later in the day. High temps in the mid-80s and lows in the low 70s.

2. Lowest gas prices. Late Monday, it was $3.37 per gallon at QuikTrip at 4113 Covington Highway and Racetrac at 4847 Covington Highway. Prices can chance quickly so look at the Patch gas widget for the best deal in the Decatur and Avondale Estates area.
