Snow totals reach up to 9.5 inches around parts of Michigan
Much of Michigan was painted white overnight.
The National Weather Service was predicting totals of an inch yesterday afternoon, and up to six inches overnight in parts of southern Michigan. It appears a bit more snow fell than predicted.
From the Associated Press:
Storms brought heavy snow to parts of southern Michigan, with up to 9.5 inches reported in the Lansing area.
The National Weather Service says 7 to 9.5 inches of snow fell by Wednesday morning around Lansing. That came after heavy rains flooded some areas Tuesday.
Winter storm watches were issued. The storms left thousands without power.
The Saginaw area had reports of about 6 inches of snow. In southeast Michigan, the weather service says the Detroit area got anywhere from a dusting to about 3 inches.
The weather service says snow totals in the Jackson and Battle Creek areas were up to 5 inches, while Kalamazoo had 3 to 4 inches. Grand Rapids, however, avoided the snow.
Tuesday's rains closed several roadways, including part of the Southfield Freeway near Detroit.
