BARAGA (AP) — Parts of Michigan are getting hit with wintry weather as a storm system that unleashed a blizzard in the Upper Midwest moves through the region.

Light snow was reported Thursday morning in parts of the southern Lower Peninsula, but more snow and ice was forecast in northern portions of the state.

The National Weather Service says that the western Upper Peninsula is being placed under a winter weather warning through early Friday, with a mix of snow, sleet and freezing rain. Snow accumulations of 6-10 inches are expected, with higher totals in places.

In the northern Lower Peninsula, snow and ice also could make driving hazardous.

The wintry weather comes after high winds this week pushed ice up on the shores of Houghton Lake, damaging some homes.
