This Weekend: There is a system moving through the Great Lakes which could create issues. Saturday morning will be dry but expect rain or snow for the Lower Peninsula starting late Saturday afternoon and evening.  Any rain turns to snow overnight with accumulations expected. Sunday starts with snow but the system moves out fast so some afternoon sun is forecast. Highs will be in the 40s. The ground is warm and the suns rays are strong, so any snow will not hang around long!
