The climate of Georgia (United States of America)
The climate of Georgia (United States of America)
Georgia is one of the states of the United States of America and is located in the southeastern part, directly above Florida. Georgia has a warm maritime climate (type Cfa according to the Köppen Geiger climate classification) with warm and fairly wet summers in which things may get very muggy. In general winters are very mild. However, in the interior subzero temperatures may occur during the night from November till March. This mainly applies to the mountainous region in the northern part of Georgia. Here the Blue mountains can be found which reach altitudes between 600 and 1,000 meters. During the winter subzero temperatures also occur on Piedmont Plateau, especially during the night on the ground.

During the summer Georgia is among the warmest regions in the southeast. During the day temperatures are between 30-34 degrees Celsius (86-93 degrees Fahrenheit). Higher temperatures are not uncommon here. From June till August temperatures hardly ever drop below 25 degrees Celsius (77 degrees Fahrenheit). Besides warm summers Georgia also gets a fair amount of showers and thunderstorms. These are caused by cold air currents that collide with warmer air. These cold air currents are mainly caused by tropical depressions from the Gulf of Mexico and the Atlantic Ocean which reach Georgia via the neighboring state of Florida. Summer is the wettest period in this state.

The long and hot summer is followed by a short and warm fall. During fall chances of precipitation slightly decrease. In October and November it starts to get colder, especially during the evening. Winter starts in December. Only in the higher situated regions in the north wintry weather may occur. Along the coast the weather remains spring-like. In March and April temperatures start to rise again after which the summer starts.

In Georgia high precipitation figures and fierce winds may occur caused by hurricanes which travel along the coastline to the north. Hurricanes that make landfall in Florida may cause inconvenience in Georgia. Officially, hurricane season is from 1 June till 1 December.

More climate information
Climate tables are useful but they don’t give an overall picture of the climate and possible weather conditions during a period of time. How high the chances are of hot or cold weather or hurricanes can often not be found in these tables. This is why we offer extra climate information per month. The figures below apply to Atlanta.
