I've always heard about a storm that dumped several inches of snow on Nashville during the first few days of November in the 1970s. So, it can happen, although rare.

The Great Appalachians Storm of 1950 dumped heavy snow on much of the state in 1950, but that was obviously later in the month.

for me. I get the best of both worlds ....I like severe... and winter storms .... just don’t recall many snowfalls in November .... but I’m looking forward putting my two cents in on late night conversations ....
There hasn't been many November snows, but they have happened. I have seen snow on the ground at Thanksgiving a few times. And in 1995 it snowed on Nov 9th which is my birthday, about a inch fell and stuck but most melted by the next morning. But I measured a solid inch on my deck out back that night. I remember it well I was watching UT and Memphis St play on TV. Manning and company got upset that night, and I was saying well at least it's snowing on my birthday. I did get to see UT beat ND in a great comeback in south bend on my birthday so I have had split success there. On the November snows front, in 1966 on November 2nd the mid state was hit by a rare snowstorm in which Nashville tied the 1950 Nov.24th record for it's greatest 1 day snowfall ever for November as they recorded 7.2 inches. On Nov 3rd Cookeville received 15.2 inches of snow smashing their November record for snow in November. I found that by looking up calendar of significant weather events in Tennessee. Also on Nov 22nd in 1950 Nashville received 5 inches of snow.  ::guitar:: ::snowman::

Shouldn't snow talk chances for next week be going in the Fall thread? We're still 3 weeks away from even meteorological winter.

I received about a half-inch of snow in 2014.  Areas to my north had about 2-4 inches.  West TN had that ULL in November 2011 which happened to be that areas only snow for the 2011-12 season.  1950, 1951, and 1966 seem to be the big hitters in November.  We have even had some very rare snow events in October (1925 had 1 to 6 inches of snow from I-40 to the Ohio River and 1993 had measurable snow just before Halloween).

OHX not impressed with next week’s snow chance:

Quote
For snow lovers out there,
this is nothing to throw a party about. In fact, the highest
PoPs/greatest moisture availability will be across the eastern
two-thirds of the CWA Tuesday morning, while the coldest
temperatures will still be entering the northwest third of the
area. In other words, the precipitation and cold air needed for
the frozen stuff will struggle to overlap. To be consistent,
however, did leave the mention of light rain/snow Tuesday morning
for areas generally along/west of I-65 and along/north of I-40.
This is still 5 to 6 days away, so expect more changes to this as
time draws nearer.

Probably shouldn’t be impressed. The euro is incredibly consistent with a fairly major Texas panhandle snow storm which lightens up but heads up I-44. It does being enough moisture for a changeover into the West half of Tn- and when I say changeover it’s just flurries.

The inconsistent GFS latest run has snow in LA and Jackson MS.

GFS playing games early this year.  In any event, I'll be happy with backside flurries in November.   Flurries in fall is flippin' fantastic for this far south folks. 

EDIT:  Even the "new and improved" version of the GFS has enough snow coming down to coat the ground in parts of mid/east TN next Tuesday/Wednesday.  Something to watch, at least.

Same. I will be happy just to see it fly in the air pre-Thanksgiving!

I noticed the intellicast color-coded regional p-type map is showing blue for the first time this season this morning in southern IL (see front page). My guess is that's virga or melting before reaching the ground, but at least that's something.  ;)
