Weather in August

August is a hot and humid summer month in Georgia, with the state in the grip of the intense sunshine. The average temperatures are in the warm 72°F (22.2°C) to hot 91°F (32.8°C) range, with oppressive heat due to the highest humidity of the year.
August receives 6" (152mm) to 8" (203mm) of rainfall and is prone to thunderstorms and tropical storms. Toccoa in northern Georgia averages between 68°F (20°C) to 87°F (30.6°C), Macon in the central portion is between 70°F (21.1°C) to 91°F (32.8°C), while Albany in the south registers in the 72°F (22.2°C) to 92°F (33.3°C) range.
State parks and reserves receive many visitors during the golden 8 hours of daily sunlight. Early morning and night are the best periods to spot movements of wild animals. The hunting season offers plenty of game, as does the fishing. Light sweatshirts with sunglasses and hats are sufficient for the heat, but the precipitation is often heavy and needs a jacket or umbrella. Expect temperatures to decline steadily by the end of August in Georgia.
