A snowy and blustery end to the work week in Upper Michigan as lake effect snow activates over the northwest wind belts. Heavy snow bands are possible in the eastern counties through early Saturday morning. Snow coverage diminishes through Sunday as high pressure builds in the region and winds lighten -- light to moderate snow chances still possible for northwest wind belts areas near the Lake Superior shore. Frigid air creeps into the U.P. early next week, steered in by the polar jet stream.
