I live outside of Atlanta.
Every couple years when the the Hurricanes and Tropical Storms pick up in the Gulf/Florida area we will catch a bit of the rain band/winds and occasionally a major rain dump or two.
It never feels like the stifling heat we get in July/August and it's usually kind of pleasant(Until some serious thunderstorm bands roll over). Overcast, cool breeze, you can actually smell the ocean from over 300 miles away.
Hurricanes also peak in September, usually after the major heat of summer.
