Winter Storm Snow Reports; Muskegon & Grand Rapids Set Records

GRAND RAPIDS, Mich. — As West Michigan’s winter storm comes to an end, snowfall reports Friday indicate that the majority of West Michigan saw between four and nine inches of heavy, wet snow.

However, a band of heavier snow just north of Grand Rapids, including much of Muskegon, Newaygo, Montcalm, and northern Kent counties, ended up dropping ten to fifteen inches.  Much less was reported to the south, with between two and four inches along the I-94 corridor.

The snow set a new daily record in Muskegon with 9.7 inches on Thursday, breaking the old record of 6.0″ from 1931. ┬áThe daily record for liquid equivalent precipitation was also broken in both Muskegon (0.96″) and Grand Rapids (0.53″).

A rough estimated snowfall map is pictured above; below are some of the detailed snow reports relayed by the National Weather Service office in Grand Rapids.
