... Major winter storm expected this weekend...

Heavy snow is expected to fall across western and central Upper
Michigan Saturday night into Sunday, with accumulations of more
than 10 inches possible where the heaviest snow falls. Over
eastern Upper Michigan, a wintry mix of snow, sleet, and freezing
rain is expected, possibly becoming all rain for a brief period
late Saturday night. On Sunday, northwest winds may gust to 40 to
50 mph leading to widespread blowing snow and whiteout conditions
in exposed areas.

Travel will become very difficult if not impossible Saturday
night through Sunday night. Stay tuned to future forecasts for
additional details as that time period approaches.
