Atlanta - Recent December Temperatures, Rain & Snow





The numbers here describe what the December weather in Atlanta, Georgia was like for every year since 2010. A series of tables gives December 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 December.
