Atlanta Climate & Weather

Atlanta Climate and Weather

Atlanta has four distinct seasons, and a temperate climate. Winters are very cold with temperatures below freezing for much of the time, but the daytime weather is mild enough to sit outdoors, with only an occasional snowfall. Summers, by contrast, can be hot and humid with heat wave spells lasting days at a time. In mid-summer (July) the average temperature is 80°F (27°C), and in mid-winter (January) the average temperature is 44°F (6°C). Atlanta receives abundant rainfall, which is evenly distributed throughout the year.
