What is the Weather like in Braselton?

Temperatures vary because of the differences in elevation, but summer weather usually arrives by late May when the first 90°F readings can be expected. From then until early September, afternoon temperatures range from the high 80's to the low 90's with a few readings in the upper 90's, especially in the southern part of the area. Summer nights are quite pleasant. Average minimums range from 63°F to 68°F, and early morning temperatures in the 50's are not unusual. Most summer rainfall occurs as showers and thundershowers. Amounts show large variations over the area, but one-tenth of an inch or more is likely at any one place on about one day out of five. Slightly less than one-fourth of the annual precipitation generally falls during summer. Thunderstorms occur about one day out of three, and a few are accompanied by hail and strong winds.
