Episode Narrative Snow began during the afternoon hours of January first across southwestern lower Michigan, and then impacted areas near to mainly west of US-131 Sunday night and on Monday the second as winds veered to the northwest to north northwest. There were temporary closures of major roads due to accidents, a few power outages and lingering hazardous travel conditions that lasted at least 24 hours beyond the event in some places, especially in Allegan and Van Buren Counties. The hardest hit areas were locations near a line from near the Holland/Zeeland areas, down through Hamilton in Allegan county, and into Van Buren and Western Kalamazoo counties. The highest amount reported was 15 inches just south of the Hamilton area in Allegan County.
Event Narrative A report of 10 inches of snow was received from Paw Paw at 7 p.m. on January 2nd. Ten to eleven inches of total snowfall was reported in Paw Paw and Bloomington for this event.
