Historically, a Knoxville snowfall on Christmas Day is unlikely. It’s more likely in the higher elevations of the East Tennessee mountains, but still doesn’t happen a lot.

The most snow on Christmas Day in Knoxville was in 1969 when seven inches fell.

Enjoy the mild weather. The early indications are things get decidedly winter-like in January.
