Not here in East TN (east of Knoxville). Although we do have strong storms. Last night Rogersville and Carter County got hit hard with hail and some wind. A funnel cloud actually formed, touch ground and immediately disappeared, no damage, in Elizabethton (Carter County). Rogersville had reports of a LOT of hail. My folks called me last night to tell me all about it (They live just outside Rogersville) they said they had never seen hail so big, size of golf balls and when they looked outside it was white for about 5 minutes. No damage, except most of there plants were lying on the ground, but today show signs of perking up. Funny though, we live in Gray, which is inbetwen the two, nothing but some rain.
So even though we don't get tornado's, we do get some strong thunder storms when the seasons change. Was in the 40's last night, back up to 70's today!

Tornado Season for Middle and West Tennessee is mid March through early June , and the once more in November. A lot of towns and cities in Tennessee are taking steps to protect citizens such as improving the Emergency prepardness plans and installing tornado sirens which warn people who are outside to take shelter indoors. Its also a good idea to have a NOAA weather radio which is like a personal "storm siren" because it makes a loud obnoxious siren noise when there are Warnings or Watches issued, they are perfect for nighttime use becuase they will wake you up!!!

There is an official season, but they can occur anytime. The two worst ones I recall were in January of different years. One in Murfreesboro and one in Clarksville.

This tends to be the most accurate answer I have seen so far. I laugh, but it is painfully true. I lived in TN for 10 years and ran from tornadoes too many times to retell and in different months. Tornadoes are to TN like Earthquakes are to California. This is like asking if it rains in the rain forest.
