Located in a humid subtropical climate zone, Knoxville is shielded from extreme cold in the winter and the stifling heat in the summer by the Great Smokies to the southeast and the Cumberland Mountains to the northwest. A slightly higher elevation than areas to the west and south also tempers summer highs. Average temperatures remain in the upper 80s during the summer and drop as low as the mid-20s in the winter. Most of the 50 annual inches of precipitation falls during the spring and fall months, with March averaging as the wettest month. Mild winters result in approximately less than 10 inches of snowfall.

The best time to visit Knoxville is in the spring or autumn, with autumn carrying the additional benefit of fall foliage. Temperatures remain in the 60s and 70s in the months of April, May, October and the beginning of November, providing pleasant walking weather for sightseeing.
