MID-MICHIGAN (WJRT) (2/9/2018) - The southern parts of Mid-Michigan were still looking at hours more of snowfall Friday afternoon after a potent system dumped 6 inches or more.

Light snowfall started in the early hours of Friday morning and picked up in intensity after sunrise. Snow was falling at rate of a half-inch to an inch per hour at times.

By 1 p.m. Friday, 2 to 4 inches of snow had fallen generally along and south of I-69, about 1 to 3 inches had fallen around the Tri Cities and an inch or less had fall north of Saginaw Bay.

Forecasts called for another 1 to 3 inches of snow in Genesee, Shiawassee and Lapeer counties to the south. Snowfall was starting to taper off around the Tri Cities, with only another inch or so expected.

Total snowfall from the system was still estimated at 4 to 6 inches along and south of I-69, 2 to 4 inches in the Tri Cities and up to 2 inches north of Saginaw Bay.

However, the end of snowfall Friday isn't the last of the white stuff we'll see in the next few days. The ABC12 First Alert Weather team was calling for another inch or two of snow on Saturday, followed by an additional 1 to 3 inches on Sunday.

Some isolated areas could see up to a foot of snow from early Friday through Sunday night.

After Sunday, the beginning of the next work week features no snow and high temperatures moderating into the low to mid-30s.
