... 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.
