The Corley Family from South Carolina are visiting Gatlinburg.
Snowflake lights have been installed in Downtown Gatlinburg.
Many tourists who traveled to the city to view fall leaves may actually see real flakes.
"We plan to go into the mountains and see the snow. A car passed by and it was covered in snow and they [kids] were super excited," said Jamie Corley of South Carolina.
A cold rain fell on the city Monday. Gatlinburg city street crews are not preparing for snow covered roads. At noon, salt spreaders had not been attached to work trucks.
"The ground is so warm we don't expect anything in town. If we do, we'll be ready," said Jim Davis with the Gatlinburg Convention and Visitors Bureau.
A wintry mix fell off and on Monday at Ober Gatlinburg, which sits high above the city.
The ski resort plans to turn all their snow machines on Monday night when temperatures dip below freezing in the higher elevations.
Ober hopes to open their snow tubing attraction by Thanksgiving.
