OSCEOLA COUNTY — As the most recent winter storm pulls out of Michigan and warnings and advisories are ending, Michiganders are left with heaps of snow and driveways to plow.

Since the morning of the Jan. 5, the state saw quick accumulation on the western side as well as some accumulating snow throughout the central and eastern parts. Some areas of the lower peninsula saw as much as 2 feet of snow and others as little as 1 inch or less, according to data from Weather.gov.

From the Leelanau peninsula on down, the western side of the state consistently saw 8 inches or more of snow. The Manistee area saw approximately a foot of snow, a trend that was seen around Ludington and Grand Rapids as well.

Moving east across the state, these amounts begin to drop. Big Rapids saw 4 inches of accumulating snowfall and Mount Pleasant saw a dip with only 1-2 inches. Moving even more across the mitten, the amounts pick up again around Midland with upwards of 3 inches.

The hardest hit area in the lower peninsula from the weather system is the areas of Berrien, Van Buren and Cass counties in the southwest region of the state with approximately 2 feet of snow over the past couple days.

The metro Detroit area and the rest of the southeast lower peninsula saw little to no snow. Moving slightly north into the Thumb, the snowfall amounts pick up and cap out around Bad Axe with snowfall ranging from about 2-4 inches.
