Episode Narrative High winds and lake effect snow continued all day Thursday December 10th into Friday morning, resulting in very hazardous travel conditions with near whiteout conditions at times. Around a foot of lake effect snow fell across areas from Grand Rapids to Kalamazoo. Numerous accidents were reported due to slippery roads and reduced visibility in blowing snow. The high winds during the storm made measuring snow very difficult, especially near Lake Michigan.
Event Narrative Anywhere from five to twelve inches of snow in conjunction with wind gusts to 40 mph created near blizzard conditions.
