The snow track continues in Upper Michigan as a stiff northerly wind steers in lake effect snow Wednesday afternoon through early Thursday -- locally heavy snowfall is possible especially in higher terrain miles downwind from Lake Superior. Snow chances and intensity minimize later Thursday as high pressure rebuilds in the region. Then Friday, a clipper system from the Canadian Prairies brings widespread snow showers and blustery conditions. Lake effect snow follows after system passage in the weekend, plus the creeping of frigid air steered in by the polar jet stream.
