Storm dumps snow, brings sleet to Upper Peninsula

HOUGHTON, Mich. (AP) -

A storm moving through the Great Lakes region has dumped several inches of snow on parts of Michigan's Upper Peninsula and could bring up to 17 inches in places.

The National Weather Service says snow began Thursday, with some reports of 4 to 5 inches by the end of Thursday, and more snow is falling Friday. The snow so far was in the western Upper Peninsula, with freezing rain and sleet in the southern U.P.

Forecasters and the Michigan State Police's Emergency Management and Homeland Security Division say driving conditions will be hazardous throughout the day and there is the possibility that the accumulation of ice will lead to power outages.

In the Lower Peninsula, forecasters are warning about freezing rain in places. Some other areas are getting rain.
