More info about this area
The United States Office of Management and Budget designated Metro Atlanta as the Atlanta–Sandy Springs–Roswell, GA Metropolitan Statistical Area. It is the most populous metro area in the US state of Georgia and the 9th metropolitan statistical area (MSA) in the United States.
The metro Atlanta region alone had a 2017 population of 5,884,736 according to the U.S. Census Bureau. It is the third largest metropolitan region in the Census Bureau’s Southeast region behind Greater Washington and Greater Miami. The highest point in the immediate area is Kennesaw Mountain at 1,808 ft (551 m), followed by Stone Mountain at 1,686 ft (514 m), Sweat Mountain at 1,640 ft (500 m), and Little Kennesaw Mountain at 1,600 ft (488 m). Others include Blackjack Mountain, Lost Mountain, Brushy Mountain, Pine Mountain, and Mount Wilkinson (Vinings Mountain).
The Atlanta metro area has a humid subtropical climate with four seasons, although summer is the longest. January daily lows average from 32–35 °F north to south, and highs range from 48–54 °F, but often reach well above or below this average. There is an average annual snowfall of about 2.5 inches, falling mostly from December through March. Snow flurries are actually common during the winter months when there is an especially deep trough in the jet stream. Winters are generally considered mild, and the summers are hot and humid but do not interfer with enjoying the outdoors for most people.
The native forest canopy is mainly oak, redbud, hickory, poplar, tuliptree, pine, and sweetgum, with chestnut having been common decades before in what is now considered oak-hickory forest. Traveling from the south, the metro area is generally the first area in which autumn leaf color can be seen, due to the different trees growing at the higher elevation and latitude. Underneath, the flowering dogwood is very common, the black cherry are quite prolific, with mulberry popping up sometimes as well. Sourwood is also in its native range, and is easily identified by the fact that it turns fiery red in early October, much brighter and weeks earlier than most other trees (which usually peak in early November).
