Say it ain't "snow"!  Yep, more on the way before the weekend.  It's looking like an ugly Valentine's Day afternoon.   Light accumulations are expected.  The good news - above freezing temps are expected for highs over the next couple weeks.

Follow along with the maps below.  The first map shows the wintry mix moving in Friday afternoon.  Snow will be possible over most of the area, with more rain mixing in south of the Parkways in Kentucky.  Notice the temperatures will be above freezing, so roads conditions will likely be wet and slushy, with brief snow-covered roads possible.  Accumulations will be most likely on elevated surfaces, like the grass and deck. 

The next map shows the system winding down by early evening. 

The next three maps are the snowfall totals.  1st = RPM.  2nd = GFS.  3rd = EURO.  It's good to see them all look similar, this adds confidence to the overall snowfall forecast.  Amounts of 1" or less are expected.  Some locally higher amounts possible, especially north.  This will be a wet snow. 

Beyond the snow maps is a map of the GFS temperatures late next week.  The colors you see surging north into Kentuckiana represent 60s!   Notice on the 7day forecast at the bottom, we'll be in the 50s by early next week - get ready for some big-time melting!  Don't let the snow chill your warm Valentine heart!

Oh by the way, have you seen the empty Atlanta expressways?  Ice storm continues over the Southeast!  Check it out below!
