Just readin some previous threads about the heat and humidity TN experiences in the summer. I was hopin that movin to the mountains would give me a reprieve from the unbearably hot, muggy summer days and eves here in Fl. I was also thinkin I'd see some snow come winter time. I'm focusing my job/home search on Chattanooga. Am I still too south to see a distinctive weather change in Chatt?

Hot and Sweaty in Fla

I am not sure about the Chat area, but here in North East TN it HAS been unusually hot and on the muggy side the last few days. Good thing is that it doesn't last long and there is about a 40 degree drop in temp at night so it doesn't stay hot and muggy 24/7 like in FL. Winter, well we had a real mild one this year, only a few days of snow and only a dusting. Then again we could have repeat of the early 90's when they had over a foot of snow fall in one day, not typical, but can happen.

What I've found here (I'm from hot and humid south MS ) is that it can get as hot here, but not as humid for the most part. Also, where a cool front would NEVER make it into south MS between June and mid Sept, just when things seem to get too hot here, a nice cool front comes in and brings what humidity is here down, and the temps down a little. You know how it is, being from FL. Highs in the upper 80s are WAY different then highs in the low 80s.

The warm weather and drought here is making for some unusual weather this spring.

Alrighty then. Sounds like there's a bit more variety up your way, as opposed to hot and sunny every day from June to Sept. And it sounds like my TN winters would be sprinkled with a bit of the white stuff. By the way, do the mountains near Chatt get snow? It would be so great to be able to take a quick trip to see snow rather than spending several days hauling our bums all the way to VA from Fl to hopefully catch a glimpse of winter.

Ah, to have the seasons

There will be a difference between Gainesville and Chattanooga. Not a big difference, though. It should be a bit less humid.

Snow is very little. Maybe less than one inch a couple of times in the winter and that either doesn't stick or melts in a few hours. It's good if you just want to look at it but not want to shovel it.

I experienced a very big difference, but I came from Fort Myers, Florida to Knoxville.

I have several cousins that live throughout Fla that have got to where they only visit in the fall or early spring. It's funny but I thought I'd never hear anybody from Fla complain about our heat. Terry's words were "Now I know why you see postcards with people laying around the porch, at least we have a breeze". I'm is East Tn. Throughout the summer sometimes Satan goes home to cool off.

So I take it the mountains surrounding Chatt aren't high enough to accumulate snow that can be enjoyed by crazy people like me who like to make snow angels in their birthday suit? I mean snow suit

You will certainly find four seasons in Tennessee (I generally love the springs and falls here). Snow will vary from year-to-year; some years there will several snows of four to eight inches, other years there will be only a couple of snows of maybe an inch. We've barely gotten snow the past two or three of years. The people who have been here only a short time have only experienced the years of very little snow.

Born and raised in Las Vegas, Nv. I know, I know - it's hot in Vegas too but I lived for those trips to the surrounding mountains in the winter to frolick and play in the snow. There's even a ski lift on Mt Charleston just an hours drive from the city.
