May brings rain and shine in Tennessee, with a steady rise in temperatures. The skies are partly cloudy to sunny most of the time, the air is sweet, and the landscape is green. There is no shortage of warmth, with the daily sunshine lasting at least for 8 hours. The average high temperatures are in the warm 74°F (23.3°C) to 81°F (27.2°C) range, while the nights are mild between 47°F (8.3°C) to 57°F (13.9°C). Snow disappears by early May even in the high lands and remains only in the ice caps of the mountain peaks. The days are ideal for visiting the many national and state parks and botanical gardens. Tulips and jasmines bloom all over the state, and one such beautiful location is the Big Cypress Tree State Park. Spring also sees the passage of frequent storms, so keep an eye on the weather before planning outdoor trips. May sees a rise in tourist footfall in Tennessee due to warm temperatures during the spring break.
