Autumn's First Freeze Dates in Georgia

The map below shows the average dates when various areas of the state see the first freeze of Autumn. This is determined "climatologically", or by looking back through history.
Earliest Fall Freezes on Record
Atlanta : October 11
Athens : October 9
Columbus : October 21
Macon : October 14
Another way to look at the map: your chance of experiencing the first freeze of the season is less than 50 percent prior to the dates shown for your location.

Also provided below are the dates on which first Fall freezes actually occurred over recent years for several locations. (Incidentally, dates for the last freeze of Spring are included in the tables, too.)
