Summary of Wednesday Night's Snowfall

A very quick 2 to 4 inches of heavy snow fell across a portion of southern Lower Michigan last night, with the heaviest falling in a band extending from South Haven and Saugatuck, east-northeast through Hastings, then over to Lansing and St Johns. The snow occurred between 10 PM and 1 AM, although at any one location the bulk of the snow fell in only about an hour and a half. Snowfall rates were briefly 2 inches per hour in spots, and there was even some lightning observed during the snow south of Grand Rapids. Below is a snowmap showing the estimated amounts and spatial distribution of the snow.
