Coldest temps on avg for Atlanta could happen anytime between Nov and March. On avg the coldest in the city is about 15-18, some of the burbs may be a couple degrees cooler. Cold waves like this happen maybe 2-5 times a season. Warmest is about 95-98 this could happen from late May to late Sept. Many think Atlanta is hotter than hot but believe it or not we don't hit 100 often (except Aug 07 where half the month was like a hundred degrees). Above avg temps in the summer may be more frequent than cold snaps in the winter. I'd say expect 3-8 times a season, temps spike well into the 90s lasting on avg from a couple days to a week.

In a normal year, the highest temperature is in the low 90s. This has happened as early as April and as late as September. Normally, though, this happens between late June and early August. Our summers are weak. The coldest is normally in the lower single digits and this almost always happens in January.

With my area, the average temps don't tell the whole story. I've found a couple different numbers and they're all pretty close, but it looks like 4 is the average low. BUT it could very possibly hit 40 below, too. OR it could be 4, but with windchill it could feel like 20 below~just kinda hard to tell.

But for an avg. low~4

For an avg. high~ 88

The records for my city are minus 55 and 116.

Interesting looking up Two Rivers, average in the summer is only 75, which doesn't surprise me as our nickname is the "Cool City".

The 10 for January surprises but maybe that will change after they throw this past Dec./Jan. in!

We also get 30 inches of rain on average and 40 inches of snow, again not this winter!!!

Two Rivers makes Massachusetts seem downright tropical. The monthly averages in Two Rivers are what a cold day that month would be like in Massachusetts.
