An early season snowstorm and lake effect snow event impacted the western Great Lakes from Monday, November 11th to Tuesday, November 12th. Snow accumulations of 3-8" were common along the I-96 and I-94 corridors with totals measured in feet in the lake effect snow belts. Record-breaking cold temperatures followed on Tuesday enabling wind chills to drop into the single digits.  While such snow totals and cold temperatures are not uncommon in Michigan during the winter months, experiencing such conditions in early November is unusual.
