February 7-8, 2013 Snowfall Totals

A strengthening low pressure system tracked across the southern Great Lakes Thursday and Friday (February 7-8) bringing widespread snowfall to Southeast Michigan.  Snow started earlier across the Saginaw Valley and the Thumb, bringing the highest snowfall totals, around 7 to 10 inches, to that region with generally 3-6 inches further south.  Lesser amounts were found south of the Metro Detroit area, as dry air had to be overcome and warm air filtered in ahead of the system.  This lead to a period of freezing rain and sleet, with some locations reporting up to 0.10 inches of ice.
