Weather in Burkesville-Cumberland County
Watch the seasons change in Burkesville-Cumberland County, a place nestled among the rolling foothills of Appalachia with a front-row seat to the expansive beauty of Dale Hollow Lake and the Cumberland River. Winters are mild, but with enough snow to play in, and the autumnal leaves are breathtaking. Spring and summer are when fun on the water ramp up.
While summers are hot, cold water fishing in the Cumberland River is still possible. The Wolf Creek Dam created a change in the water temperatures of the lower Cumberland River because the waters that come into the river are pulled from deep under the surface of Lake Cumberland. Trout thrive in this cold tailwater. For swimming, Dale Hollow Lake has pleasant summertime temperatures.
