SAGINAW COUNTY, MI (WNEM) -

Snow is expected to hit parts of Michigan, but cold is a definite for the entire Great Lakes State.

Highs in the teens are forecast for much of the state on Thursday, and snowfall is predicted in parts of western Michigan and the Upper Peninsula.

"Arctic air will continue to deliver frigid afternoon temperatures," said TV5 meteorologist Catherine Bodak. "Today, we will only reach the upper teens with a few scattered snowflakes possible."

Bodak said Friday night into Saturday, low pressure will impact the region with widespread accumulations expected. Early estimates suggest 2-4" along the I-69 corridor as well as the eastern thumb. North of that, 1-3" is possible. "Stay tuned for latest forecast updates into Saturday," said Bodak.

WOOD-TV reports Grand Rapids is marking its eighth day in a row with measurable snowfall. It says that so far this season, Grand Rapids has received 11.5 inches on the ground.

It took until Jan. 21 to get to 11.5 inches last season.
