Winter Around Atlanta

Winter in Atlanta can be unpredictable, with every season being a bit different from the last. While snow isn’t guaranteed every year, our community has frequently been struck by storms without warning, so it’s best to prepare for the unexpected.

Besides the occasional snow, temperatures can sometimes dip below freezing and freezing rain can cover our roadways in black ice.

Get Prepared

Understanding the various types of winter storms is a great first step in preparing for the worst this winter. You should then ensure you have multiple ways to receive weather updates. Make sure to include a source that is accessible anywhere, even during a power outage.

Additionally, an emergency kit is a great precaution to stay one step ahead of winter weather. Pack your kit full of essentials and make sure to include items that could be beneficial in the middle of a winter storm!
