Snow is Record-Setting in GR, Flint, Detroit, and Heavy in the UP

 
Posted April 15th, 2014 @ 9:11am

Meteorologists expect the West Michigan snowfall will melt during the day with bright sun peeking between clouds.


Grand Rapids record setting snowfall overnight.  The National Weather Services measured, officially, 1.6 inches at the Grand Rapids airport, which is the most for any April 14th.  The last record was 4/14 in 1939 at 1.4 inches.

For the season Grand Rapids has had almost 116 inches of snow.

Muskegon's measured 1.6" overnight is was not a record setter.  In 1905, April 14th produced 2.0" at that airport.

Muskegon's seasonal total is almost 133 inches.

So far...

 

The National Weather Service in Detroit measured 3.1 inches, which gives Detroit the deepest snow season it's ever seen, at 94.8".

The less-than one inch that fell in Flint gives that town its biggest seasonal snowfall ever, at 83.4".

 

In Michigan's upper Peninsula, some areas received several inches of snow on Monday. The forecast calls for another 6 to 10 inches of fresh snow  over the western and north-central UP through Thursday morning.

In that part of our state, there's now concern over rising water levels on the Escanaba River.
