Georgia: A December Heat Wave is Coming
We’re about into December, and that usually means pretty cold temperatures are around most of the U.S. Personally, I don’t like the snow and cold at all. I wish we could just have a little bit around the holidays and then fast-forward to spring. Thankfully, in Georgia, we get mild temperatures in the winter. In fact, people come here from all over the U.S. to escape the cold and snow. That’s why we get so many “snow birds” in these parts. The good news, for people like me who love extra hot weather, is that a December heat wave is coming to Georgia. I’m talking about temperatures that are hot for December even by Georgia’s warm standards.
The forecast calls for higher than normal temperatures soon, and that warmer weather will last for at least a few days. Here’s the scoop on what areas are getting the warmest weather and when.
A December Heat Wave is Coming to Georgia
According to Weather.com, the state’s weather pattern is going to turn warmer than normal starting on Thursday (Nov. 30), just in time to usher in December. Moreover, these above normal temperatures are on target to last for a few weeks. While Georgia temperatures are usually in the mid-50s in December, on Thursday, we’ll be well into the 60s. That run of 60s will last all weekend through Monday. Then, we’ll slip back into the 50s but rebound again into the 60s by the following weekend. It’s not exactly bikini and trunk weather, but it’s warmed than expected, for certain. A “December heat wave” might be a bit of a strong term for this weather, since the main warmup only lasts a few days. But, it’s certainly going to be warmer than it has been lately, and I’ll gladly take the upswing as we head into winter.
