Lake-effect snow continues tonight, with additional accumulations possible, especially toward the Keweenaw Peninsula. A Winter Storm Watch is in effect for all of Upper Michigan and northern Wisconsin from Thursday night through Saturday. Significant snow accumulations will be possible. Most of Upper Michigan will see over a foot of snow, with over two feet for many areas. The Michigamme Highlands and Porcupine Mountains could see over three feet. This will combine with wind gusts of at least 50 mph to create blowing snow and reduced visibilities less than a quarter-mile at times.
