Middle Tennessee WeatherThe highly varied topography of Tennessee has a significant impact on the state's climate. The landscape varies generally from west to east, starting with the gently rolling lowlands in the west, rising to the eastern border of the state dominated by the Great Smoky Mountains.
Average annual temperature across the state range from around 55F to a bit over 60F. Winter mean temperatures are near 35F over most of the state, while summer temperatures average between 75F and 80F. The length of the growing season is also linked to topography: most of the state has a growing season between 180 and 220 days, but this stretches to over 235 days in the lowlands around Memphis and drops to near 130 days in the highest mountains to the east.
The principal source of moisture for the state is the Gulf of Mexico to the south, which results in a gradual decrease of precipitation from south to north. In Middle Tennessee, the variation is from around 45” in the Central Basin to 50-55” in the surrounding Highland Rim. The
Over most of the state, the greatest precipitation occurs in winter and early spring owing to the more frequent passage of large-scale (frontal) storms over the region. A secondary maximum of precipitation occurs in midsummer in response to shower and thunderstorm activity, especially in July in the mountains of the east. Fall tends to be the dry season for the state, due to the higher frequency of slow-moving high pressure areas during this season. Average annual snowfall ranges from 4-6” in the south and west to over 10” in the east. Due to the relatively mild winter conditions over most of the state, snow cover rarely persists for more than a few days.
Severe storms are relatively infrequent in the state, being east of the center of tornado activity, south of most blizzard conditions, and too far inland to be often affected by hurricanes.
