Atlanta - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
Memphis, Tennessee - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

They are both very similar humid subtropical climates, but which one suits you more?

I'd go for Memphis. It's just a titch cooler and snowier in the winter, and more prone to ice storms than Atlanta, which is interesting. I'm not sure how much I'd be bothered by the oppressive summers, which are slightly cooler in Atlanta (higher elevation), but summer is hot and humid in both cities so the winter is the deciding factor for me.

They are almost equal but Memphis gets the edge for being slightly sunnier, snowier and wetter.

Atlanta. The temperature difference makes all the difference in the summer. I remember going there during the summer when I lived in Mississippi and the mornings were actually somewhat refreshing.

Memphis for the slightly cooler winters. The downside is they seem more prone to spells of extreme heat, but hot is hot. I wouldn't exactly be flocking to Atlanta to cool off.

Seems everyone who wants more stable weather prefers Atlanta.

My pick is Atlanta.
The less severe cold, snow and ice storms the better.
Atlanta is plenty green as it is too imho.
