   Georgia Weather

   Georgia is the South reinvented. We’re proud to show the world all the sights and experiences that can only be found here. As the (unofficial) capital of the Southeastern United States, Georgia stands out for how it lives up to expectations — and how it defies them. With big cities and small towns, and a geographical range from the mountains to the beach, there’s a lot more to Georgia than our peaches.

   It’s always a great time to tour Georgia. Georgia boasts a moderate climate year-round, while providing a distinct and rich experience each season. Our summers are warm, our falls brisk and sunny, our winters mild, and our springs are blooming with dogwoods and azaleas. Georgia has average rainfall each year and varying snowfall — from light in the mountains to virtually none in other regions.

Exploring Georgia in the Spring

   Spring is an undeniably beautiful time of year to visit Georgia as blooming flowers and trees add delightful bursts of color to landscapes from the mountains to the coast. With an average low of 65 degrees (F) and an average high of 80 degrees, the fair and bright spring weather is perfect for outdoor activities like hiking, camping, and strolling through the state’s many botanical gardens. Spring break trips and holidays offer perfect opportunities to explore new places and attend events throughout the state.

Exploring Georgia in the Summer

   Summer in Georgia brings the hottest and most humid temperatures of the year, which means it’s the perfect time to cool off in lakes, rivers, and the ocean, play outside at theme parks, and visit some of the state’s world-famous indoor attractions. With an average low of 80 degrees and an average high of 95 degrees, summer days in Georgia commonly include afternoon rain showers. Summer also is when Georgia peaches and watermelons are in season, so be sure to try some fresh from the farm when you visit.
