A winter storm dropped more than 6 inches in some locations across Southeast Michigan on Friday, February 9th.  A few areas over southern portions of Southeast Michigan saw up to 9 inches of snow!  A wave in the mid levels of the atmosphere brought snow that started around 1 am early Friday morning.  Heavy snow, with 1 inch per hour rates at times, continued to dump snow across the area resulting in 4 to 5 inches across much of the area by noon.  Snowfall continued as the wave passed and a frontal boundary set up across the area.  This heavy snowfall resulted in numerous traffic accidents and school closures across southern Michigan.  Snow finally began to diminish by the later evening, with only a few light snow showers overnight.
