Q. What can I expect the weather to be like in Tennessee?
In Tennessee, we are lucky to experience all four seasons, and the weather can vary quite a bit according to the region and elevation of the area you are visiting. Spring and summer are great times to get outdoors here and enjoy the opportunities for water sports, hiking, climbing, biking, fishing and golfing. Our mild fall weather draws people outside to enjoy the changing leaves and sunny days. While our winters here are generally mild, we do get snow and ice on occasion. You may want to try your hand at skiing and snowboarding in our eastern mountains.
