Midland – An early spring storm could drop several inches of snow this weekend on parts of Michigan’s Lower Peninsula.

The National Weather Service says a strengthening low pressure system moving northeast from the Ohio Valley to New England is expected to bring a rain-snow mix Sunday across the peninsula. Lower Michigan’s mid-section, including Midland, Iosco, Bay and Gladwin counties, could get the heaviest snow, bringing 5 inches or more to some areas.

Meteorologist Alex Manion of the weather service’s office near Detroit says the state’s southernmost belt likely will see more rain and little to no snow.

Manion says it’s hard to pinpoint how much and what kind of precipitation will fall with this storm. Thirty miles, he adds, could be the difference between two and five inches.
