STORY 1: Black Friday Deals

Black Friday 2023 is underway with notable deals already available. Some highlighted discounts include 20% off Away suitcases, 40% off Lululemon Align Leggings, and 20% off the Dyson Airwrap. The list encompasses diverse categories such as mattresses, tech, fashion, beauty, and luggage. Noteworthy deals feature up to 40% off Nectar mattresses, up to $3,000 off Samsung TVs, and 20% off all Away suitcases. Tech deals from Amazon, Best Buy, Samsung, LG, Target, and Walmart offer significant savings. The article advises shoppers to conduct price history research, make a shopping list, shop early, and consider big-ticket items during this extended Black Friday period, emphasizing potential savings on personal care staples.


At The Battery Atlanta, Santa's offering a free chance for parents to photograph their kids with him, while Santa's Post Office offers a contactless experience. Running from November 24 to December 24, families can visit Santa at the Truist Community Corner, where he'll listen to kids' wish lists and accept handwritten letters. Additionally, the Holiday Market, within the Community Corner, showcases diverse-owned small businesses from Atlanta. Alongside photo opportunities and giveaways, families can enjoy a gift wrap station and other engaging activities. It's a festive opportunity for children to meet Santa and for families to embrace the holiday spirit with diverse shopping options and joyful experiences.


For Friday's traffic update, the Northwest Corridor Express Lanes and South Metro Express Lanes will have adjusted schedules from November 20 to 26. Black Friday predictions for high traffic near popular Atlanta shopping areas include Cumberland Mall on SR 3N/Cobb Pkwy. Expect heavy traffic, but it's anticipated to be better than usual, with the worst congestion likely between 1 and 4 p.m. Drivers are urged to remain alert, wear seatbelts, and minimize distractions. The Click It or Ticket initiative is in full effect. To plan ahead, use for real-time travel updates and seek assistance from HERO or CHAMP if needed. Remember to adhere to Georgia's Move-Over law, allowing one lane for emergency vehicles when possible.

STORY 4: Holiday Travel at the Airport

Holiday travelers at Hartsfield-Jackson International Airport, beware of challenges this season. Parking shortages, hour-long security lines, and construction disruptions await. To navigate smoothly, arrive 3 hours early during peak times, expect parking hurdles due to ongoing construction, and prep for long bag lines. Security delays may occur due to lane closures and upgrades. Opt for alternative parking like MARTA or reservations at off-airport lots for a stress-free experience. Pack snacks, as concession lines might be lengthy. Stay updated on security wait times for a hassle-free journey at the world's busiest airport.

STORY 5: Weather

It’s black Friday and during the day, expect cloudy skies with a high of 57°F and a slight 24% chance of rain showers. Winds will be light and variable at 5 mph coming from the southeast. The humidity will be around 69%, and the UV index is moderate at 2 out of 11. Sunrise will be at 7:18 am, and the day will conclude with a sunset at 5:30 pm. As night falls, temperatures will drop to 42°F with mostly cloudy skies transitioning to partly cloudy after midnight. There's a minimal 17% chance of rain. Winds will be light and variable from the NNW at 1 mph. Humidity will rise to 91%.
