A weak storm moving northeastward will spread a swath of light snow across parts of Wisconsin, Michigan, Ontario and Quebec into Saturday.

Just enough snow will fall in some areas to coat sidewalks and some roads with snow and slush.

The stripe of snow will roll out of the northern Plains and into central Wisconsin, northern lower Michigan and part of the Upper Peninsula.

The accumulating snow will stay north of Chicago and Detroit with spotty showers and perhaps a few snowflakes. The accumulating will brush Milwaukee, Wis., and Grand Rapids and Saginaw, Mich.

In Canada, the swath of accumulating snow will stay north of London and Toronto, Ontario.

The storm will graze Ottawa, Montreal and Quebec City with a slushy wintry mix.

A wintry mix including a bit of ice can make for spotty, slippery travel in northern upstate New York and northernmost New England.

Farther south, mild, moist air will bring areas of rain for a time Saturday in the northern mid-Atlantic to southern New England. Generally near and south of the Mason-Dixon Line in the mid-Atlantic, much of the time Saturday will be rain free and warm.

Much farther north, Saguenay, Quebec, could receive with up to 8 cm of snow.

A second storm will have more snow and potentially more impact to areas a bit farther north in the Midwest, but slightly farther south, especially from around Ottawa to Quebec City later in the weekend.
