60-day weather outlook

The temperature swings (cool spells and warm spells) over the next couple months May-June look like they will balance out a little warmer than normal to near-normal, rainfall looks near-average to below-normal. Drought is expanding in Georgia, this increases the odds of a warmer than normal summer but as of now not expected to be as hot as last summer. More to come in future posts.

Temperatures Tuesday morning outside the perimeter were about 3 degrees above the last cold snap with only some patchy very light frost in sheltered low spots in the usual colder areas of the metro. Rome, Cumming, South Rockdale County, Panthersville and Peachtree City reported a minimum of 35, Kennesaw in my backyard 38, Athens and Covington 39, Newnan 37.

We are now PAST the average last frost AND past the average last freeze date so plant your tomatoes, April 25th is the date of the latest freeze on record in Atlanta in 1910.
