Hazardous weather...

* light to moderate lake effect snow will develop near Lake
   Superior tonight between 1am and 4am and continue through
   Friday night.

* Winds near Lake Superior will increase out of the northwest
   on Friday morning... gusting as high as 45 mph near Lake
   Superior east of Marquette. The strongest winds will occur
   late Friday morning through Friday evening. This will likely
   lead to white- out conditions Friday into Friday night along
   M-28 east of Marquette. Away from Lake Superior... patchy
   blowing snow is expected with winds gusting to 25 mph.

* Snow accumulations tonight through Friday night are expected
   to be 2 to 6 inches over northern and eastern Marquette

   Champion to Ishpeming to Gwinn.

* Wind chill readings will be as low as 25 below zero late
   Friday morning through Friday night.

Impacts...

* snow covered roads will continue to be slippery.

* Blowing and drifting snow will lead to very dangerous travel
   conditions tonight through Friday night near Lake Superior...
   and mainly along M-28 east of Marquette. Similar past events
   have led to the closure of M-28 between Harvey and Munising.
   If you become stranded... you will also have to face bitterly
   cold wind chills. Avoid travel along M-28 east of Marquette
   if possible.

* Wind chill values to 25 below zero can lead to frost bite on
   exposed skin in as little as 15 minutes.

   effect snow are forecast that will make travel very hazardous
   or impossible.
