:. Tennessee Weather And Climate .:

Tennessee Weather is hot in the summer, mild in the winter, and receives ample precipitation year-round. Warm winds from the Gulf of Mexico are the greatest single factor determining Tennessee weather, with elevation also playing a role.

Tennessee gets around 50 thunderstorms a year, many of which are destructive. The remnants of tropical storms often dump large amounts of rain on the state. Tornadoes aren't as frequent as some states, but the 15 per year that Tennessee does get are more frequently deadly than in any other state.
