The climate of Macon (Georgia - United States of America)
Macon is centrally located in Georgia on the banks of the Ocmulgee River. The city is located in an urban area and is the capital of the county. Until the 18th century this region was home to the Creek Indians who were expelled by white colonists. The city was founded because of the presence of Fort Benjamin Hawkins which was the defense line against the ‘savage’ Indians. During the 19th century an increasing amount of white farmers settled here in order to cultivate crops along the river. Because of the warmth, high humidity figures and the presence of fresh water from the river many large cotton plantations came into existence. Macon was one of the regions in which many black slaves were put to work. Because Macon was one of the first settlements many historic sites can be found here such as the old fort, a burial ground and several historic houses can still be visited. Several museums can be found here as well in which you can learn all about the history of Macon and the region.
Macon has a warm maritime climate. Summers are warm and muggy with high precipitation figures. Fall is pleasantly warm here. Winters are mild without getting extremely cold. However, occasionally snow may fall. Spring starts early in Macon. Because of the influence of the sea temperatures are moderate all year round. Large differences in temperatures between summer and winter are uncommon.

More climate information
Climate figures are very useful but don’t present a general impression of the climate and the eventual weather circumstances within a certain period. The figures don’t always reflect the chance of wintry weather, extreme heat or hurricanes. That is why we offer useful extra climate information for each month of the year:
