Overview

A winter storm impacted northern Indiana, southern Lower Michigan, and northwest Ohio from late Saturday afternoon (January 30th) into the day Sunday (January 31st).  The heaviest snow fell from late Saturday evening into early Sunday morning. The heaviest snowfall accumulations were noted roughly along and south of US 30 corridor where reports of 5 to 9 inches of snowfall were received.  Lesser snow accumulations of 1 to 3 inches were reported across extreme northeast Indiana into south central Lower Michigan. Precipitation mixed with and changed over to sleet for a time south of US 24 late Saturday evening. This mixed precipitation resulted in some slightly lower storm total snow accumulations across these locations. East winds were strong during this event, gusting to 25 to 35 mph at times. The combination of moderate to heavy snow and these strong wind gusts led to significantly reduced visibilities at times.
