Overview

The new year has certainly started off as an active one across Southeast Michigan with this latest winter storm dumping more than a foot of snow across much of the area.  Snowfall totals, along with how this winter storm affected other nearby areas can be found below.

So how did this winter storm stack up against other storms in the past?  Detroit came in with 10.6 inches, which does just crack the top 25 list and comes in at #24 on the list (records since 1880).  Flint received 17.1 inches and put them at the 3rd highest snowfall (records since 1921). Out of the three official climate sites, Saginaw was the only site to not make the top 25 list with this winter storm, but still saw 8.8 inches of snow.  At the National Weather Service office in White Lake, while not an official climate site, saw 14.6 inches of snow breaking the record, however records only go back to November 1995.  For more details and to see the full lists, click here.
