Pell City, AL Overview

The largest and most highly developed city in St. Clair County, Pell City serves as one of two county seats.  Just 30 miles east of Birmingham, the city enjoys a strategic location near Interstate 20.  Pell City combines small-town friendliness with a thriving business community, excellent schools, and well-developed recreational facilities that include exceptional golf courses.  The surrounding area is equally appealing, crowned by beautiful Logan Martin Lake.  Fishing, boating, and water sports are common pastimes.  The Pell Civic Center plays a major role in community life, serving as a recreational and social gathering place.  In addition to a gym and walking track, the center offers a kaleidoscope of classes from square dancing to aerobics and arts and crafts.  Large civic affairs and community meetings are often held at the center's expansive meeting and banquet facilities.  Families enjoy the surrounding grounds that feature a picnic area, a children's playground, a walking trail, fishing opportunities, and a boat launch.  Many refer to Pell City as a "sleeping giant," although the phenomenal growth in St. Clair County will not allow the city to remain a well-kept secret for long.

Climate and Weather

The Temperature chart displays average high and low values for January and July, and is designed to provide an indication of both seasonal and daily temperature variability. The Weather Risk Index indicates the calculated risk of each type of weather event occurring in the future. This risk is based on historical localized storm events and weather patterns. The national average for each type of weather event equals a score of 100, so a score of 200 would represent twice the risk as the national average, and a score of 50 would represent half the risk of the national average.
