Blue Ridge Mountains - North Georgia Weather

North Georgia, as we see it here at Tour North Georgia, varies in elevation from about 1200' up to  4,784'  at Brasstown Bald - the highest point in the State of Georgia. As a result the weather can vary greatly! 
Read more below....

North Georgia weather is influenced by several factors including:

The Appalachian Mountains, which can cause orographic lift and create rain and snowfall.

The Atlantic Ocean, which contributes to the humidity and rainfall in the region.

The Gulf of Mexico, which can bring warm and moist air to the region during the summer months.

The prevailing winds, which can bring cool air from the north in the winter and warm air from the south in the summer.

Seasonal patterns, such as El Niño and La Niña, which can have a significant impact on the region's weather patterns.

Overall, the North Georgia weather is typically mild and temperate, but can experience severe weather events such as hurricanes, tornadoes, and thunderstorms.

Temperature change with elevation

On average, you will loose about 3-3.5 degrees F for every 1000ft in elevation you gain. For example, our Chestatee (North Georgia) area is just over 1100'. Our Sapphire Valley, NC operating base is 3200' on the valley floor. This causes the temperatures to be about 7 degrees cooler there. 

May 2022 Observation Data: On May 3, 2022 it was 84 degrees at our Chestatee Weather Station while the weather station on Trey's Island Road in Sapphire Valley registered 78 degrees. A 6 degree variance and right in line with our estimations!
