Savannah Climate & Weather
Savannah enjoys a humid subtropical climate that makes outdoor activities possible year-round. Summers (June to August) are hot, though the heat is often moderated by thundershowers, with August usually receiving the most rainfall. Average temperatures in summer hover between 70°F (21°C) and 92°F (33°C). Winters (December to February) are short and fairly mild, with temperatures averaging between 38°F (3°C) and 64°F (18°C), and snow is rare. Savannah is at risk for hurricanes, though less than most other cities on the Atlantic coast. To avoid the extreme heat and muggy, rainy weather, try visiting in September or October when the days are balmy and not stiflingly humid.
