A quick-moving winter storm dropped anywhere from 3 to 6 inches over southern and eastern Upper Michigan, and 6 to 12 inches across northern and western Upper Michigan, with up to 16 inches over the Keweenaw Peninsula. Most of this snow fell in about an 8-hour period. As snow caked onto tree branches and power lines that were still coated in ice from an ice storm three days earlier and winds increased behind the system, there were a few power outages reported, mainly in Marquette and Alger Counties. Blizzard conditions also forced the closure of M-28 between Harvey and Munising.
