Episode Narrative An area of low pressure moved across the Great Lakes region on January 12, bringing both rain and snow to lower Michigan. Wet snow began accumulating on the northwest portion of the system. Several hours of light to moderate snow lead to difficult driving conditions for the night of the 12th and much of the day on the 13th. Lakeshore areas received an additional boost of snowfall in lake effect form after the system passed by, giving NW flow snow belt areas several more inches.
Impacts surrounding this storm included slide offs and accidents as well as school closures on Friday the 13th. Storm total snowfall for Jan. 12-14 was commonly in the 6 to 10 inch range along the lakeshore and extending inland into Kalamazoo County. A few locations received 10 to 14 inches mainly along and west of a line from Grand Haven to Kalamazoo. Inland areas were generally 3 to 6 inches, with some locally higher amounts.
Event Narrative Eight to twelve inches of snow was reported across Van Buren county.
