Atlanta - Recent January Temperatures, Rain & Snow





The numbers here describe what the January weather in Atlanta, Georgia was like for every year since 2010. A series of tables gives January data by year for temperature, precipitation and snowfall.

They begin with average maximum and minimum temperatures in degrees Fahrenheit and Celsius. That's followed by how many hot or cold days occurred each January.
