SOUTH HAVEN, Mich. — The snow started overnight in South Haven and by Wednesday afternoon over 4 inches of snow blanketed the Lakeshore.

The heavy snow covered roads slowing traffic on one of the busiest travel days of the year. At times intense snow squalls would drop visibilities to around a quarter of a mile and traffic would slow to a crawl.

Road crews were busy along the interstate, with multiple plows driving up and down I-196 to clear the way for busy motorists.

On the side streets in South Haven, snow piled up making it difficult for those heading out on their morning commute.

Lake effect snow will start to taper off later tonight but MDOT does want to remind drivers to take and slow and give plow trucks some extra space.
