The cooler air brigs along a few snow showers late Thursday.  These brief and often vigorous downpours of snow will briefly reduce visibility and put down just enough of a coating of snow to create some slick spots.  The coverage of the snow showers may reach 20 to 30% coverage of the area before midnight.
