Summary of Friday Night's Snow

A fast moving low pressure system which tracked from northern Minnesota to northern Ohio last night brought a narrow swath of two to five inches of snow to a portion of Michigan. The snow changed to a period of freezing drizzle early this morning before ending. The maps below (click to enlarge) show the total snow accumulations from this latest event, compared to what the National Weather Service was forecasting prior to the storm. It looks like the three to five inch band of snow was a bit narrower and farther north than what was forecast.
