Climate

© Brand: Shenandoah Joe

The climate in Knoxville is moderate when compared to most other American cities. The temperature will be about 90° F/35°C in summer and lows of about 10° F/-12°C in winter. Knoxville also gets snow for a couple of times in January. Since most Indians find it difficult to adapt to the winter climate, it is advisable to have protective clothing including jackets, glouse, muffler etc. While these are cheaper in India, we suggest that you buy them here, since these items are of much better quality here.
