This thing has been slow and steady for us - not big accumulations but I thought we’d be all done by now.

Future radar has it snowing past midnight and quite heavily at that. Totals may exceed current forecast amounts. I can see them getting upped to possibly 8-12"+. :ph34r:

To my recollection, have to go back to Feb '11 since any part of Motown beat this area in a large storm. Considering you will get at least double my 4" total, might be Dec '74 since that happened! Then there's this stat- only 1 in 88 clippers produce the kind of synoptic totals you are getting. So yeah, greater Detroit is beating some steep odds with this very nice storm..

It has now stopped snowing here at my house.  The new snow around 5" and now have just under 8" on the ground.  While there as a long term heavy snow fall event the flack size was very snow so not a whole lot of accumulation.

Snow is easing up here finally, not nearly as heavy as it was b4. Currently some light snow falling and should end by midnight. Visibility is much clearer. Now, the big "Dig-Out" starts soon.

Model trends would suggest west of there as well. Might want to be within a couple miles of the lake for the best stuff as models have it retreating/hugging the shore with time.

We got about 2.5 inches or so over the course of the day - one of those light accumulation days but snowed off and on all afternoon and evening. Wish it was six or seven but it looks great out there and very festive!

Will post for sure. I never experienced such a strong, dynamic clipper , filled w so much moisture. It was snowing for nearly 13 hours continuously. Snowfall rates were 2"/per hr for a at least couple of hours by evening commute. Just an amazing storm. :D

Storm recap for mby. Per ASOS the 2 periods of snow totaled about 12 hrs, with +SN limited to an hour around 4:30 to 5:30 pm. Still, when I went out to clear my walks and parking area about 10 pm, it was still coming down at a nice clip and with the wind and cold temps felt like a true "storm" and more like middle of January! Had to dress in full winter gear like in a NMI December. 

 

Nice little storm and pleased with the 2nd half rally that got me to 4.5" 

 

Next up..

Storm recap for mby. Per ASOS the 2 periods of snow totaled about 12 hrs, with +SN limited to an hour around 4:30 to 5:30 pm. Still, when I went out to clear my walks and parking area about 10 pm, it was still coming down at a nice clip and with the wind and cold temps felt like a true "storm" and more like middle of January! Nice little storm and pleased with the 2nd half rally that got me to 4.5" 

 

Next up..

From GRR's disco, more headlines for the LES counties are almost a given and somebody will sweet-spot with another 6+ (Prolly Allegan Cnty if had to guess). 2-3" for Marshall would be frosting on the 6-layer cake. Some of my original 0.4 hvy dusting from the 7th is at the bottom with five days of measurable snow since.. ;)

Just a little bit, like indianajohn said. I'm not sure if anybody in Lake/Porter got advisory amounts. Lack of reports doesn't help. Oh well. It wouldn't have survived the coming warm up anyway.

Yes, Here at my house I receive about a half hour of very heavy snow fall. Heck the rate now is still heavy with about a .25 mile visibility but during the heaviest it was around 200 feet if that Now at 3" for today but almost 2" of that fell in a half hour or less

So, 4+ in/hr there..wow, I love that when it's ++SN  Don't see it often in Marshall, but remember it fondly from my NMI days. This makes up for a general shafting for GR with the Clipper when it looked like you'd get 6" min

Prolly my final post in this thread. It's been a ton of fun these 8 days. So cold and active it reminded me of my years in the NMI snowbelt! As good as this start has been for mby, the real jack-zone has been a couple counties north, where some scored another 6+ with the final clipper.
