...Potential for moderate to heavy lake effect snow Saturday

Cold Arctic air flooding across the Upper Great Lakes behind a
storm system moving through the region Friday night into Saturday

Saturday night into Sunday for the northwest wind snow belts of
Lake Superior. Blustery northwest winds gusting at or above 30 mph
along with fluffier lake effect snow will also cause considerable
blowing and drifting of snow and lowered visibilities Saturday
night into Sunday for the northwest wind snow belts.

Those planning travel or recreation in Upper Michigan this
weekend should stay tuned to the latest National Weather Service
forecast updates and statements regarding this winter storm
system.
