Rain mostly west Friday, before ramping up with snow this weekend
Light to moderate showers mainly in the Western U.P. Friday before widespread rain and snow to end April.
A Northern Plains system lifts northeast towards Upper Michigan Thursday night, spreading a batch of light-to-moderate rain overnight. The rain band recedes towards the west end of the region for much of Friday, as the system departs north of the U.P. Following Friday night is a deeper Central Plains-based system capable of producing moderate to heavy rain and snow -- total weekend precipitation could exceed 2″ in areas west, plus weekend snow up to 12″ in the highlands west. A potentially soaking, snowy end to April in Upper Michigan.
