Event Summary


A Winter Weather Advisory was issued for accumulating snowfall during the daytime hours of January 24, 2022. The initial advisory was issued for areas between the I-94 and I-69 corridors, but was later expanded to include all of southeast Michigan except Midland, Bay, and Huron counties. The advisory was issued in response to an Alberta clipper low pressure system tracking southeast from the upper Midwest and through the lower Great Lakes. Moisture associated with the system interacted with cold air to produce widespread fluffy snow across all of southeast Michigan beginning around 7am and continuing until the late evening hours. The snow impacted both the morning and evening commutes. Snow intensity throughout the day generally ranged from light to moderate in intensity, with snowfall rates up to a half of an inch per hour generally observed with locally higher rates at times. The peak of the event ended up occurring during the late morning through the early evening hours, when most locations saw the bulk of their snowfall accumulation amounts. Total snowfall amounts generally ranged from 2-4 inches, with highest totals (more in the 3-4 inch range) within the initial Winter Weather Advisory counties. A few reports came in at just over 5 inches.
