The slow-moving weather system that has already brought waves of rain to Nashville over the past 24 hours, could bring November snow to other parts of Tennessee.

The National Weather Service is predicting Nashville will see rain showers off and on late Monday into Tuesday with a low temperature in the upper-30s. But the same low-pressure system could bring 1 to 3 inches of snow to areas of the state, particularly in West Tennessee.

On Monday morning, the weather service issued a winter weather advisory for Giles, Lawrence and Wayne counties to the south.

A winter weather advisory is also in effect for Carroll, Crockett, Decatur, Dyer, Gibson, Haywood, Henderson, Lauderdale, Madison, Shelby and Tipton counties.

The weather service predicts the heaviest snow will come after midnight Monday through 6 a.m. Tuesday.

Any snow that does accumulate in those areas will likely be limited to grassy and elevated areas.

Many counties in the eastern part of the state are also under wind and flood advisory as well as flood warnings.
