September is the start of the beautiful autumn season of Georgia, with a steady drop in temperatures. The average high temperatures are in the warm 78°F (25.6°C) to the hot range of 87°F (30.6°C), while the average low temperatures are in the comfortable range of 61°F (16.1°C) to 71°F (21.7°C). Athens in the north registers between 63°F (17.2°C) to 84°F (28.9°C), while Savannah in the south is warmer in the range of 68°F (20°C) to 86°F (30°C). The countryside dazzles with shades of yellow, orange, red, and golden as the leaves change colors. The bright sunlight lasts for a daily 7 hours, and it is better to employ mornings and evenings or enjoying the beaches and ocean waters. The apple season is at its peak, and plenty of pumpkin patches and corn mazes spring by Halloween. Precipitation is to the tune of 4" (102mm) to 5" (127mm) statewide and usually limits to 10 days in the month. The decline in storm activity is excellent news for kite lovers as wind speeds are moderate at best. The clear September skies offer fantastic stargazing opportunities in Georgia.
