Lake-effect snow is falling in western and northern Michigan and forecasters say roughly a foot of new snow could be on the ground by the weekend.

The National Weather Service says the heaviest snowfalls in the state are expected off of Lake Michigan in the northwestern Lower Peninsula and along Lake Superior in the Upper Peninsula. Lower totals are expected in southwestern Michigan and northern Indiana along Lake Michigan.

Forecasters say cold air that's moved into the region is boosting conditions for lake-effect snow Thursday. Mid-Michigan is expected to get a few inches and southeastern Michigan, including the Detroit area, could get an inch or less depending on the location.

Forecasters say central Indiana, including the Indianapolis area, likely will see 2 to 3 inches on Saturday night into Sunday.
