Summer temperatures are moderated somewhat due to elevation, but are still rather warm.  Days can get hot, but prolonged periods of excessively hot weather are unusual.  High temperatures exceed 90 only 20% of the time and temperatures over 100 are extremely rare.  The highest temperature ever recorded was 103 and it occurred twice on July 12, 1930 and July 29, 1952.  The average summer high temperature is 88 with it only cooling at night to around 68.  The relative humidity is usually over 70%.  North Georgia typically sees about 11 inches of rain over the course of the summer, but the rain tends to come in the form of heavy downpours that may be spaced weeks apart.
