Feb 1-2 Storm Total Snowfall

A strong low pressure system tracked through the Ohio Valley bringing heavy snow to southeast Michigan on the evening of February 1, 2011. Heavy snow and strong winds gusting to 40 to 50 mph created Blizzard-like conditions across much of the area during the overnight hours...mainly through the Saginaw Valley.  After a break in the snowfall during the early morning hours, another round of snow made its way into the area during the day on February 2, 2011 as the low pressure system tracked through the eastern Great Lakes. Snowfall totals ranged from 6 to 10 inches south of M-59, with 10 to 14 inches of snow across the Saginaw Valley and the Thumb region.  A graphic showing the reported snowfall totals and summary statement with reported snowfall amounts are below.
