Spring

Pigeon Forge weather becomes unpredictable March through May. The old saying goes, if you don’t like the weather in Tennessee just hang around for about an hour, it will change!  Temperatures can go from below freezing to 70 degrees in a few days. March has the most radical changes. Higher elevations will get snow at some point during March.  By mid-April it really feels like Spring and you can plan on short sleeves and short pants. But bring an umbrella; afternoon showers in April average out to 4 inches.

Summer

The most popular time of year in the Smokies, second only to the changing of the leaves in Fall.   It is often hot and humid so drink lots of water and bring deodorant!  Afternoon showers and thunderstorms are common, June through August. With afternoon temperatures reaching as high as the 90’s and evening temperatures settling back down to a nice 60/70, the conditions are perfect for playing all day at Dollywood or Splash Country, and then settling down for the night in a cabin or by the pool with a nice tall glass of sweet tea. Higher elevations during this season have the most appealing weather.

Fall

In the Fall things begin to cool down in the Smokies and the skies begin to clear, setting the perfect stage for the changing of the leaves that draws people from all over the world!  There is nothing like Fall in the smokies.  Pigeon Forge Weather remains fairly moderate.  While it can dip down to freezing or below in the night towards the end of Fall the beginning of Fall is very pleasant during the day and night.  Snow has been known to occur as early as October, but the first flurries begin usually in mid November.  If there is any precipitation planned during the time of your trip from November to December be prepared and bring good rain gear and some shoes to walk in the snow.

Winter

While extreme weather does occur around the Pigeon Forge area, Pigeon Forge itself usually remains unscathed by heavy snow fall and ice storms.  With an increase in elevation in the surrounding areas the risk for inclement winter weather rises.  The beauty of it is you can be in the 50’s and 60’s in Pigeon Forge and look up and see the snow capped Smokies at the same time.

 

Your best bet for having a great time in Pigeon Forge is to be prepared.  Check back here for your forecasts, but always pack some clothes for those ‘just in case’ events!
