  1. Default Florida to Tennessee

    Planning to take a trip to Gatlinburg from Florida. While I am in TN, planning on driving throughout the Smokies and taking a day trip to Pikeville, TN. Does anyone know how these roads are during the month of March? Snow? Ice? I am a native of Florida, never seen snow nor have I drove in it.

    Welcome to RTA!

    Unfortunately, weather is so unpredictable. Best thing to do is wait until just before you are going to leave, and check the weather. Then check it as you go. The way this winter is progressing, it could be among the coldest and snowiest on record for a lot of areas! Have an alternative plan in case the weather doesn't hold out for you, that's what I'd recommend.

    I think you should be fine in March regarding ice and snow since its nearly spring. But then again I can be wrong. Just drive real slow.

    Default One or Two Indicators

    It's not gospel for all the roads in the area, but many of the secondary roads in Great Smoky Mountains National Park are closed throughout March and into April. Another good indicator is to watch when facilities along the southern Blue Ridge Parkway start to open.
