Ask anyone that has lived in the Atlanta area and they will tell you — the weather overall, year round is quite pleasant here. If you are thinking of relocating to Atlanta from New Jersey, New York or Connecticut, we think you’ll like Atlanta’s humid subtropical climate, which is characterized by warm summers and cool winters, is ideal for families and individuals that don’t want the hassle of snow blowing, hurricane evacuations, mudslides and either super-hot or super-cold temperatures. Moderate temperatures and humidity and not too much ice or snow describe the Atlanta climate perfectly. Snowfall is typically experienced once or twice per season, and is usually less than two or three inches. Ice storms do occur, but not regularly, as for the majority of the winter, temperatures remain above freezing. The average annual temperature is 61 degrees, with July being the hottest month (averaging 89 degrees) and January being the coldest month (the average low being 33 degrees).
So you won’t be able to snow ski here, but you will be able to play golf or tennis; hike, bike or run; garden; and enjoy outdoor festivals and events nearly year-round. The landscape of metro Atlanta is characterized by rolling hills and broad, smooth plains. Residents enjoy the Chattahoochee River, one of the most prominent natural features of the region, helping form the hilly topography of the city’s northern suburbs. The scenic river forms the northwestern boundary of the city. On the east of the city, residents and tourists alike are impressed by Stone Mountain, a quartz mountain rising 825 feet above the city.
