If Boston is still cool at this time of year, Atlanta already enjoys wonderful weather. In fact, as of April, Atlanta observes a rise in temperatures which reaches its peak between June and August. Since the climate of Atlanta is humid, this time of year also corresponds to an abundance of rain: also know as the famous summer rain. It is therefore normal to have showers during this season while Phoenix is experiencing a drought. Rest assured however, because with a clear sky that emerges quickly, the good weather also joins the party. More so, due to its geographical location, the Atlanta climate is sometimes influenced by the hurricanes that hit Florida or the southern coast of the United States. This season generally remains the best to discover the city and its surroundings.
