... Accumulating snow and a wintry mix Friday into Saturday...

As a storm system moves northeast across the Great Lakes region
late Friday afternoon through early Saturday, snow should spread
into at least southern Upper Michigan late tonight and then across
the rest of Upper Michigan Friday morning. Snow will then mix with
or change to freezing drizzle or light freezing rain at times
Friday afternoon and Friday night before changing back to all snow
early Saturday.

Widespread snow accumulations of 2 to 4 inches are likely by late
Friday afternoon with another 1 to 3 inches Friday night. Any ice
accumulations will be light. Additional snow accumulations of 1
to 3 inches are expected Saturday, with the greatest amounts
closer to Lake Superior.

North winds gusting to around 30 mph Friday night into Saturday
will also cause some blowing snow, especially for exposed areas
along Lake Superior.

Since the snow will be wet and heavy Friday and Friday night,
shoveling and plowing of the snow will be more difficult than
normal. The wet snow will also make Road conditions especially
slippery.

... A wintry mix of precipitation expected late Thursday night
into Saturday...

A storm system developing over the plains on Thursday will lift
toward the Great Lakes and bring a mix of wet snow and light
freezing rain to much of west and central Upper Michigan late
Thursday night into Friday. The mixed precipitation will gradually
transition over to lake enhanced or lake effect snow Friday night
into Saturday as colder air wraps in behind the system. The best
chance for moderate snow accumulation during the period will be
over the west half of Upper Michigan, particularly over north-
facing higher terrain along Lake Superior. North wind gusts
increasing to 30 mph late Friday night into Saturday may also
cause some blowing snow, especially for exposed areas along Lake
Superior.

The increasing north winds will also build waves to 7 to 10 feet
over the eastern half of Lake Superior by Saturday. These waves
could also cause minor beach erosion for areas east of Marquette
to Grand Marais.

Motorists should use caution when traveling Thursday night into
Saturday as area roadways will become slippery from the
combination of wet snow and possible freezing precipitation.
