Looks more like December or January than November

Check out how far south icy precipitation & snow get in the South......not only early Tuesday, but with storm developing on the Gulf Coast Wednesday.

Accumulating snow, sleet & freezing rain are all on the table for Louisiana, Arkansas to Tennessee Wednesday to Thursday morning.

Here, there is increasing consensus of a slight jog to the northwest in the storm track initially & a much earlier arrival.  Data suggests sleet & freezing rain overspreading much of the area by early Thursday morning.

Even if there is icy mix for a bit at the start, it should transition to all snow with time.

As new low pressure forms on the East Coast & takes away the energy from this system, the snow should wind down pretty quickly Thursday evening, it appears. 

This scenario is a Miller Type-B winter storm system, but it is usually clippers that do this sort of thing.  If you are going to get a Gulf coastal low, it will usually ride the East Coast & may re-develop into a big Nor'Easter.  To take a bit of an Inside Runner track like this into our area, then transfer the energy to develop East Coast Nor'Easter is not as common.

Nonetheless, accumulation of some icy mix & snow will occur here, it is just a question of how much & who will get the most accumulation.

Watch the storm system develop in the northern Gulf/Gulf Coast area, then move into our area, only to be "stolen" by the Nor'Easter blowing up along the East Coast.

This will tend to cut icy mix & snowfall totals from what they could be here.
