Early spring snow isn't all that rare, and we're getting some tonight!  Snow showers develop after midnight, and could be mixed with light sleet or rain to start. 

Follow along with the maps below. 

Notice on Map 1, the snow begins with above freezing temps, so plenty of melting is expected.

Map 2:  The steadiest snow will likely be along/north of Bluegrass/Western Kentucky Parkways, and before sunrise Tuesday.  This is when we could see light accumulations of 1" or less, mainly on grassy (elevated) surfaces.  Temps will still likely be near or above freezing, so roads will mainly just be wet.  Although, any brief heavy snow shower could briefly provide a light covering of snow.

Map 3:  Snow tapers off to lighter and fewer snow showers mid-late morning.

Map 4:  Mainly, cold, and breezy tomorrow afternoon with NW winds at 15-30 mph.  Temps only in the 30s. 

Map 5:  Total snow accumulations could reach 1" in spots for a short time before melting.

All in all, this will be a short-lived, nuisance snow - with little impact.  School closings are not expected at this time.
