... Accumulating snow 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
continue through Friday night before transitioning to lake effect
snow showers off Lake Superior. The snow may mix with or change to
freezing drizzle at times from around Iron Mountain to Marquette
late Friday afternoon and evening.

Widespread snow accumulations of 2 to 4 inches are likely by late
Friday afternoon. Heavier snow will then become focused over the
higher terrain of west and north central Upper Michigan Friday
night as lake enhancement begins. Additional snow accumulations of
2 to 6 inches are expected Friday night with the greatest amounts
in the higher terrain near Lake Superior. Additional lighter snow
accumulations will occur Saturday as the snow diminishes.

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