Smithville Weather & Climate

The varied topography topography plays a significant role in Tennessee's climate. The Cumberland Plateau, at approximately 2,000 feet above sea level, runs northeast-southwest across the state in a belt about 50 miles wide. The climate is generally warm and humid in summer and cold, but not frigid in winter. Precipitation is evenly distributed throughout the year. Severe storms are relatively infrequent, being east of the center of tornado activity, south of most blizzard conditions, and too far inland to be affected by hurricanes. An average of 11 tornadoes are observed in the state each year, mostly confined to areas west of the Cumberland Plateau. Hailstorms occur 2 or 3 times a year. Thunderstorms are frequent in the warm season, and severe thunderstorms with damaging winds are experienced at scattered locations throughout the state each year.
