US Climate Zones Part 2 | Southeast

Southern Bog in morning


The Southeastern region of the United States is made up of six states:  Alabama, Georgia, Florida, North Carolina, South Carolina, and Tennessee.  Weather in the southeast consists of very mild winters, with temperatures averaging in the 50's and 60's during the day.  The Southeast doesn’t often receive heavy snowfall during the winter. Rain is the most common form of precipitation. However, some of the states, such as Georgia and North Carolina, do experience ice storms and snow in the Blue Ridge, Appalachian, and the Great Smoky Mountains.

The Southeast experiences very hot and humid summers, with temperatures averaging in the 90s for much of that season. Thunderstorms are very common during the afternoon.

Spring appears a bit earlier in this region than in the Northeast and autumn lasts just a little bit longer. Instead of having to wait until April to celebrate the coming of spring, the flowers begin blooming in March, and the weather continues to heat up until about mid-October, when cooler temperatures start.

Southeastern residents can benefit from the LeafGuard gutter system to handle the regular rainstorms that occur. Many rainstorms are due to the humidity and the proximity to the coast. Several states, like Florida, the Carolinas, Louisiana and Georgia, rank in the top 10 states for the most rain in the US. Our gutters and larger downspouts can handle considerable rainfall and move it away from your home without clogging*. LeafGuard’s proprietary hangers are installed two feet apart, directly into the fascia board with fasteners that are designed for the heaviest rainstorms. Our seamless one-piece design has no gaps or seams for water to leak through and won’t pull away or sag, guaranteed*. Southeastern rains need LeafGuard. Get it. And forget it®.


*Guaranteed not to clog for as long as you own your home, or we will clean your gutters for free.
