We know the question on your mind, Music City — when’s it going to get warm again? Thanks to the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration’s Climate Prediction Center, we know what temperatures and precipitation trends to expect in our city for March, April, and May. While exact weather conditions typically can’t be predicted more than a week in advance, here’s a seasonal outlook to help you prepare for what spring will bring.

Reminder: The first day of spring is on Monday, March 20.

🌡️ Temperature

Think warm. This spring, Nashville has a 33-40% chance of temperatures being higher than normal.

🌨️ Precipitation

Expect slightly more precipitation. Nashville has a 40-50% chance of seeing higher than average rainfall amounts this spring.

More on March

Typically in Nashville, March’s temperatures fluctuate between an average low of 41.5° and an average high of 58.6°, but expect to see more of those near-60° days. Pro tip: March has an average daily maximum UV index of 4, so don’t slack on the sunscreen.

All about April

In April, the average high and low temps are between 69.3° and 50.7°. Temperatures are warm and the average sunshine per day is nearly nine hours, so plan for a stroll around Radnor Lake with a matcha green tea latte from The Well Coffeehouse in hand. Did you know? April is the last month it regularly snows in Nashville. On average, there’s only 0.3 snowfall days — bring on pretty spring colors.

Make memories in May

Historically, average highs in May increase ~9° to 78.1°, with an average low of 59.5°. It also sees about three more days of rainfall than April and an increase in humidity — make sure you bring your pocket-sized fans to First Horizon Park for Nashville Sounds games.
The most wonderful time of year to get out and explore the city is…

We told you about the city’s Adopt-a-Street program a few months ago, but here’s another free tool you may not know about.

Second Harvest Food Bank, Tractor Supply, and the Metro Beautification and Environment Commission partnered to create a tool lending program (think: cultivators, hoes, rakes, shears, and more). Pro tip: With the first day of spring right around the corner — Monday, March 20 — it might be a good idea to get those reservation forms in.

How it works

  • Submit your waiver and reservation form.
  • After your pick-up day and time is confirmed, you’ll head to the Nashville Department of Transportation Warehouse (750 S. 5th St.) to collect the tools.

What to know

  • Tools can be checked out by groups working to produce healthy food for donating to community members in need or city beautification and/or improvement projects.
  • Pickups and returns are Tuesday, Wednesday, and Thursday from 8 a.m. to 2:30 p.m.
