Gatlinburg Climate

Never too hot; never too cold.

The Gatlinburg weather forecast can change rapidly because of the city's high elevation, but the conditions are usually moderate and far from the extremes.

That means it's cooler here in the summer than in the surrounding area, making a visit to Gatlinburg just the thing to take a break from the heat. Come cool your feet in a mountain stream. Highs rarely reach the 90's. Wintertime lows are normally above freezing, even when snow paints the higher elevations white.
