Weather. It's one of the reasons to Retire Hardin County!
Tennessee’s climate varies from east to west, but it is generally considered to be moderate with four distinct seasons. The budding of wildflowers and dogwoods occurs in spring and honeysuckles welcome summer. Fall foliage and crisp air make Tennessee autumns memorable and the wintry weather brings mild flurries of snowfall.
The driest time of the year is the fall and most precipitation occurs in winter and early spring. Northeastern Tennessee tends to experience more snowfall in the winter, due to its lower temperatures and mountain terrain. Winters are mild with the average temperature of 40 degrees Fahrenheit. The summer months are a prime time for outdoor recreation, with an average temperature of 83 degrees Fahrenheit.
