GRAND RAPIDS, Mich. (Feb 6, 2014) — We’re still 43 days until the first day of Spring, and our winter snowfall totals continue to mount.
As you can see, Grand Rapids’ total of nearly 89 inches is almost three feet above normal and 53 inches above what we had last year at this point. In Muskegon, the total is over 100 inches and is also nearly three feet above normal.
It’s a similar scenario across much of Lower Michigan. Here is a list of some of the totals, as well as the departure from normal:
- Lansing: 49.3″, 16.1″ above normal
- Detroit: 67.9″, 42.0″ above normal (their snowiest month ever)
- Flint: 62.3″, 32.1″ above normal
Not all of Michigan is seeing huge surpluses, however. Some areas are actually below normal. Here’s a look at some other cities:
- Alpena: 45.2″, 7.3″ below normal
- Houghton Lake: 43.2″, 1.9″ below normal
- Marquette: 109.7″, 14.7″ below normal
