Episode Narrative A low pressure system formed over the Tennessee Valley region and moved to the north northeast to just east of Toledo Ohio, bringing heavy snow to southern lower Michigan. The snow fell from the morning hours of February 9th through the mid morning hours of February 10th. The snow was heaviest during the late afternoon and evening hours of the 9th. Most of the area south of a line from Muskegon to St. John's had between 6 and 10 inches of snow.

The storm coincided with Michigan's winter 'Count Day' used to determine base funding for local public school systems. Many school systems closed due to the snowstorm. Several significant accidents occurred on the regions primary arteries. I-94 was closed for several times due to jackknived trucks. There was also a multiple vehicle pileup on I-196.
Event Narrative Seven to ten inches of snow was reported across Van Buren county.
