Hey Everybody,

My family and I will be spending a few days in the Townsend area next month. We were able to get a really nice cabin with a nearby swimming pool at a country club. However, it is not heated. So, my question is whether or not it will be warm enough to swim in mid-May.

Keep in mind I've lived in Florida my entire life, so, what's cold to me may not be cold to someone who lives in the more northern states.

Thanks

Default Global Warming Articles

S./B. : See you must have been watching those Global Warming Press Conferences..? . Right now I would guess 50 -50% chance. Ten days ago I would have said95% chance as we had 3 days straight of 87 degrees. Then we got our 25 degrees frost plant killer.
Plan to pack your swim suit, and may dip up to knees if we do get back to the mid 80';s.. TV just said snow flurries Sun pm. Global Warming. ??

LOL, who knows. Even down here we just had a cold front pass through. No where near 25 degrees, but for April in FL it's pretty chilly. The weather certainly has been acting strangly these days.

It looks like it will be warm enough after all, if the 10-day forecast is to be believed

It gets into the fifties at night here. I'm from Florida, too. Don't count on the swimming pool being warm.

If I'm wrong, it will be a pleasant surprise, but I hate to get your hopes up.

I see what you mean. But, with the highs being in the mid to upper 80's, if the pool is in the direct sunlight there's a good chance it will be warmed up by midday.

Thanks for the caution, though. I appreciate it

I'm going to guess the pool temperature will be just fine in mid-May, even in Townsend. In Nashville, it would almost certainly be, but Townsend is in the mountains so it's going to be a few degrees cooler there (which is not necessarily a bad thing).

I don't want to beat this to death. I just don't want you to be disappointed.

Today it will get to be 80 degrees in Townsend. The rest of the week, the high will be 77 degrees. It may reach 80 next Tuesday and Wednesday.

Either way, it will be great vacationing weather! Townsend is gorgeous!

Yes, I'm sure it will be very pleasant whether the pool is warm enough or not. I'm definitely looking forward to it. If all we wanted to do was go swimming, we could stay here in FL where it's already stifling. I much prefer being able to do other activities outdoors and not be soaked with sweat within 15 minutes.

Thanks again for all your info, hiknapster and alleycat. I really appreciate it.
