A powerful weather system is heading toward Mid-Michigan this week, potentially bringing over a foot of snow to some parts of Michigan on February 2nd & 3rd. The Metro Detroit area may see upwards of 12 inches while the Flint area will see 9 to 10 inches. Genesee, Lapeer, Shiawassee, and Sanilac counties are under the Winter Storm Watch from 7 a.m. Wednesday through 11 p.m. Thursday.
Rain on Tuesday evening will change to snow early Wednesday morning and will continue through the day Wednesday and Thursday. Over an inch of snow per hour is possible when the heaviest bands of snowfall pass through the area. This could be Flint’s largest single-day snow event in about 5 years. The last time it experienced 10 inches of snow in a single day was January 29th, 2016.
