Accumulations will be minimal with trace amounts possible. Temperatures for the weekend will sneak back to the 40s for Saturday and Sunday. Another round of cool air will move in late on Monday into the middle of the week. That will bring a few several chances of snow. Early model data shows between 1”-2” in valleys, though totals will be dependent on how quickly the cooler air moves in on Monday which could push snowfall totals closer to 2”-4” inches.
