From Storm Team 8:
A weekend winter storm is expected to bring heavy snow Friday night into Saturday morning across much of Michigan. Snow will change to rain for a while in southern portions of the state, and later lake effect snow will roll in after temps drop through Saturday. The National Weather Service says minor lakeshore flooding and dune erosion is likely.
