Episode Narrative The second in a series of Alberta clipper systems was located just south of Chicago on the morning of the fourteenth. An area of light snow moved across the area during the day with the steadiest snow south of I-96. Less than one inch of snow accumulation occurred as a direct result of the clipper. As the clipper pulled east of the area, increasing northwest winds pushed lake effect snow showers into all of the coastal counties and were most numerous over the southwest coastal counties.
The mainly light snow shower activity continued through the evening of the fifteenth before dissipating. Generally, three to locally eight inches of snow fell, with the highest accumulation rates occurring early on the fourteenth as a moderate to heavy lake effect band initially pushed onshore. Occasional wind gusts to 30 mph combined with temperatures of zero to five degrees above zero to produce wind chill readings of fifteen to twenty degrees below zero.
Event Narrative Locally up to eight to nine inches of snow was reported in Van Buren county.
