On December 21 in Southwest Lower Michigan…

Temperatures soared to record highs around 60 degrees across Lower Michigan on the winter solstice. A sharp cold front came through in the evening and was followed by 2 to 4 inches of snow on the following day.
It is one of the coldest December days in history across Lower Michigan. The high temperature at Muskegon and Grand Rapids is only 5 above zero, the lowest maximum temperature ever recorded in the month of December at both sites.
A powerful low pressure center moves across the northern Great Lakes and brings strong, damaging winds to Lower Michigan. Thousands lose power as winds gust to 70 mph along the Lake Michigan coast. Dozens of trees are downed from Ludington to Saugatuck. Isolated whiteouts also occur in narrow snow bands.
