A Winter Weather Advisory was issued for late-season accumulating snowfall during the daytime hours of April 18, 2022 for areas north of I-96 and east of I-75. Strong frontal ascent produced widespread snowfall as a plume of moisture surged northward from the Ohio Valley once a large low pressure system situated over the Great Lakes. Cold temperatures above the surface largely maintained all-snow precipitation type even as air temperatures near the surface climbed into the upper 30s to lower 40s. Periods of high snowfall rates (1 inch per hour) produced a swath of 3-4 inch snow totals, mainly east of I-75, between M-59 and M-46 while areas in the vicinity totaled closer to 2 inches. For many areas, the accumulating snowfall occurred on grassy and/or elevated surfaces. However, several weather related automobile accidents did occur due to quick slushy accumulations and poor visibilities from heavier snowfall bands.
