Snow is back in the forecast for Friday.  The nor'easter that brought over three feet of snow to the Berkshires has weakened and parked off the coast of Maine.  An upper level low pressure center located just west of Buffalo (as of Thursday evening) will "pull" the nor'easter westward.  The "big dance" of storms will allow moisture to circulate into Central New York late tonight and tomorrow.  It's a fascinating process and the expected result is steady snowfall Friday afternoon and evening.

The heaviest snow is expected to fall across the Tug Hill and higher elevations surrounding the Mohawk Valley.  Snow will continue through Friday night.  Here's the 24 hour snowfall forecast beginning Friday morning:
