The National Weather Service out of Gaylord says the first widespread accumulating snow of the season has the potential to blanket parts of northern Michigan Friday.

The snow is expected to start falling before dawn in some locations and will taper off during the afternoon or evening hours.

Gusty winds of 25 -35 miles per hour could make travel hazardous at times and wind chills Saturday morning are expected to be in the teens across much of the region.

The greatest threat for 4 inches of snow or more is an area north and west of Rogers City to just south of Traverse City.

The current forecast for Alpena is calling for around 2 inches of snow on Friday and maybe another 3 inches Friday night with lighter amounts to the south.

Additional lake effect snow is possible on Saturday and Saturday night.
