Snow showers return with a Clipper system Friday.  There is a little instability involved with this system, which means some snow squalls will be possible.  Snow squalls are quick bursts of heavy snow, which rapidly reduce visibility, and can drop a quick 1/2 - 1" of snow in minutes.  On rare occasions thundersnow can occur as well. 

Let's start with the grand total snowfall accumulation map below.  Most areas will only pick up 1" or less by tomorrow evening.  However, if you get caught under a heavier burst of snowfall, higher amounts of 2-3" are possible.  Like last Wednesday, temperatures will be above freezing and most of the snow will be melting on contact with the pavement, so road conditions will be generally in good shape. 

The second map shows the Futurecast view around 11am.  The snow chances go up late Friday morning through the afternoon.  Notice over southern Kentucky, more rain will be in the mix.  The lightest snowfall is expected southwest of Louisville towards the Western Kentucky Parkway.  Heavier amounts of snow could occur where we saw the heavier amounts Wednesday, to the north of Louisville.  Either way, be ready for a little more snow for your Friday!
