February is mildly cold in Georgia, with the average temperatures in the 28°F (-2.2°C) to 65°F (18.3°C) range. Savannah in the south is milder between 39°F (3.9°C) to 64°F (17.8°C) compared to Helen in the extreme northeast between 29°F (-1.7°C) to 54°F (12.2°C). Cabin rental rates are at the lowest at the peak of winter, with spectacular mountain views in Helen and Dahlonega. The coast is in limits during the winter season as the cold rarely penetrates deep in the south. Trekkers find thrill to conquer the peaks of Brasstown Bald and Springer Mountain when the cold is at its peak. The weather warms steadily by the third week of February, and there is a short window of calm weather before the storm season commences in spring. Wildlife is active without the need for hibernation as in the American north. The daily sunlight of 6 to 7 hours brings welcome warmth, as the daylight increases significantly. February sees the end of the winter in Georgia.
