The collision of a surface low and strong cold front over Middle Tennessee produced a measurable and picturesque snow for the end of meteorological fall. Total accumulations ranged from a dusting to as much as four inches across portions of the Mid State. Before the cold front arrived late on November 29th into the 30th, rain had been falling in a number of areas. The rain briefly changed over to a wintry mix, including snow, early on the morning of November 30th before ending. Much of Middle Tennessee's accumulating snow fell on the back side of the low pressure system, which had already moved east to the Mid Atlantic states. Wrap-around moisture from the low pressure, in combination with falling temperatures during the day on November 30th, allowed precipitation to change into snow. By the time snow was concluding on the evening of November 30th, locations east of I-65 (especially on the Cumberland Plateau) saw the most snow accumulation.
