We will enjoy one more day in the 60s on Monday before the coldest air of the season pushes in Monday night.
We expect rain to arrive Monday afternoon ahead of a strong cold front that will abruptly drop temperatures Monday night, causing the rain to change over to snow flurries and snow showers.
Most areas will not see more than a coating on the ground and rooftops overnight into early Tuesday morning. HOWEVER, in areas along the border with Kentucky and in eastern Middle Tennessee could see 1/2″ to 1″, with 1″ likely on the higher elevations of the Cumberland Plateau. In Kentucky 1/2″ to 1″ is possible.

The biggest concern may end up being the bitter cold temperatures and wind chills.
Tuesday’s high may not get above freezing, and with northwest winds 15-25 mph, wind chills will be in the teens.
By Wednesday morning, the low should drop to 18° which would tie the record set in 1911.
