A west-northwesterly jet stream tracks in a series of fast-moving clipper systems from the Canadian Prairies to bring snow chances to the U.P. this weekend. The Friday system arrives in the western counties during morning hours then spreading eastward midday. Snowfall is moderate at times, and coupled with gusty winds can reduce driving visibility from the blowing snow. Snow accumulations by the end of Friday range from 1-6″ -- greater than 6″ possible in eastern U.P. locations.

The next winter clipper systems bring rounds of scattered snow showers Sunday and Monday.

Under the west-northwesterly jet stream, temperatures trend below seasonal throughout much of the weekend in Upper Michigan. Then a gradual warmup follows as the jet stream shifts from the southwest next week.
