The 10 Snowiest Cities In Georgia For 2021


We looked at the data to see which cities in Georgia have the most snow every year.

Editor’s Note: We updated this article for 2021. This is our first time ranking the snowiest cities in Georgia.

Sure, a Saturday morning right after a foot of fluffy snow is the best thing ever. But that same amount of snow on Tuesday in Georgia can make a commute last forever. So just imagine it's the dead of winter, and the time of year when the ground is frozen, the air is bone chilling, and there are piles of dirty, nasty ice encrusted snow all over the place.

And while Georgia doesn't get that much snow, there are some places that get a bit of snow. This is about the time of year when you're just about ready for spring -- especially in Dahlonega, the snowiest place in Georgia.

So, put on your parkas, snow boots and your gloves and let's go outside to see which Georgia cities get dumped on the most every year. After analyzing all the cities in Georgia with a decent amount of people in them, we came up with this list as the 10 snowiest cities in Peach State.

What's the snowiest place in Georgia with more than 5,000 people? That would be Dahlonega with an average annual snowfall of 5.4 inches.

Read on below to see where your town ranked, you snow angels.
