June is the start of the hot and humid summer season in Georgia, with long days amid soaring heat. Day temperatures are in the hot zone of 82°F (27.8°C) to 92°F (33.3°C), while nights are warm between 59°F (15°C) to 72°F (22.2°C). Clayton in the north is between 59°F (15°C) to 83°F (28.3°C), while Waycross in the south registers in the range of 69°F (20.6°C) to 92°F (33.3°C). The sun is not a friend with its powerful rays at the peak during the afternoon. The northeast mountains welcome a large number of visitors who intend to escape from the scorching heat. The southern two-thirds of the state is much warmer than the extreme north, while the coast offers little respite from the heat. Mornings and evenings are tolerable on the beaches, which become barren by afternoons. Sunglasses and sunscreens find peak usage with the increase in heat. Georgia summers are vulnerable to tropical storms and tornadoes, so keep an eye for storm alerts in June in Georgia.
