The highest reports come from Lexington and Croswell in Sanilac County at 7". Also in Sanilac County, observers in Marlette reported 4.5", and Sandusky reported 4".  In Huron County, Bad Axe had a report of 4.5", but just up the road in Filion, only 1.1" was observed. Closer to the shoreline, Port Austin reported 2". Also in the Thumb, Tuscola County reports ranged from 3" to 4".
After the highest snow reports from the Thumb, the second-greatest reports came from Genesee and Lapeer counties. North Branch received 5.8", and a Lapeer observer measured 4.6". Flint reported 5".
Snow totals were not as high in Shiawassee County, with 1" to 3" reported. Saginaw and Bay county reports ranged from 1" to 2".
Mid-Michigan can expect drier weather for Thursday afternoon, along with weakening wind. Highs will remain below freezing and dip into the teens on Thursday night. Continue to use cautions on the roads, as snow and ice will likely impact drivers.
