...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

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.
