Event Summary

A low pressure system formed out over the Southern Plains and moved northeast over the Ohio River Valley bringing snow to Southeast Michigan on February 26th.  This longer duration snow allowed for a Winter Weather Advisory to be issued, with the main bulk of the snow falling during the afternoon hours on Wednesday.  Snow continued to linger around through the overnight hours into early Thursday as the deformation zone (the northeast portion of the low pressure system) slowly pushed off to the east.  Snowfall totals averaged around two to six inches across much of the area.  Lesser snowfall totals were seen up in the Saginaw/Tri-Cities area, with higher amounts to the south.
