Going to school in Georgia has its pros and cons when it comes to weather. The best part is that there are four seasons! Although the seasons change and are tolerable, there are some important things you should know before settling in Georgia. First, spring in Georgia is filled with pollen and rain. It can be hell for the allergy sufferer; however, the rain tends to help assuage allergies. The expression, "April showers bring May flowers," holds true each year in Georgia. The rain usually starts in March and goes on through April. So, when coming to Georgia, bring an umbrella, rain boots, and some Claritin! During the summer, Georgia weather is hot and humid from morning to night. Days often are hot and bright, while evenings and nights are often stormy. Occasionally, there are severe thunderstorms. In Decatur, it's rare to experience tornado warnings, but severe thunderstorms are often accompanied by a tornado watch and hail. 

When it comes to the cooler seasons, fall is a little funny in Georgia. The weather is touchy and often can't decide whether it wants to remain warm or begin to be cold. There is a lot of ragweed in Georgia, and a combination of constantly changing weather and allergies often puts people off. Be prepared to layer and have a box of tissues! The winters aren't as awful as those in the mountains or in the Northern United States, but it's still fairly cold. The weather is usually dry, and for those with dry skin, it's a good idea to bring your moisturizer and lotions! There's not a lot of precipitation; however, Georgia has recently been experiencing ice, sleet, and snow. If you're looking for a place with a white Christmas, "the Peach State" may not be the place to go.

Did You Know?
  • It doesn't often snow in Georgia, but when it does, be prepared to be rooted where you are. Georgia roads are terrible when it ices or snows, and the drivers aren't much better, either.
  • When it rains in Georgia, it pours. And it pours for days, so rain boots and an umbrella are essential!
  • Georgia weather can be unpredictable, so it's best to watch The Weather Channel. The temperature can start at 47 F in the morning, 71 F during the day, and 84 F the next day. It's not like this year-round, but it's better to be prepared for anything.
