Michigan – The combination of some very chilly air and lake-effect moisture may bring parts of the state some snow this weekend.

The forecast upper air pattern for Saturday shows an upper low north of Lake Superior with a strong northwest flow into the state. That northwest flow will bring some very chilly air (for this time of year) into Michigan.

The colder air over Lake Superior and Lake Michigan will create lake-effect rain showers for West Michigan. Further north, the rain showers will mix with a few flakes along US-10 by Sunday morning. For northern lower and the upper peninsula accumulations should be less than an inch mainly on the grassy areas. Some of the higher elevations in the upper peninsula could see several inches of snow, again mainly on the grassy areas.
