MICHIGAN — (FOX 17) — My forecast was for a “good old-fashioned” Michigan winter, and so far, it’s been right on track. Here is a look at some of the snowfall totals so far this season, as well as the forecast and comparison to last winter.  Grand Rapids’ total so far is a whopping 50″ above where it was last winter.

Here are some other totals across Michigan, where there are reliable weather stations and regular observations:

  • Lansing:  36.6″, 8.2″ above normal
  • Detroit:  51.1″,  29.4″ above normal
  • Flint:  50.1″,  24.3″ above normal
  • Sault St. Marie:  82.0″,  5.1″ above normal

Even though there are some locations with below normal snowfall, it isn’t by much:

  • Alpena:  40.1″,  5.2″ below normal
  • Houghton Lake:  37.5″,  1.8″ below normal
  • Marquette:  104.4″,  5.3″ below normal.

More bitterly cold air will result in more accumulating snow. For the latest forecast, join us on FOX 17 News or visit the weather page at http://www.fox17online.com/weather
