Episode Narrative A band of heavy lake effect snow showers brought localized snowfall of 6 to 12 inches across the entire coastline of Van Buren county and also into extreme southwest Allegan county. The heavy lake effect snow was the result of the interaction of north northwest winds and arctic air already in place in conjunction with a weak trough of low pressure.
Event Narrative Snow accumulations of six to twelve inches were reported along the entire shoreline of Van Buren county. South Haven was particularly hard hit, where a foot of snow fell.
