PAW PAW, Mich. (AP) -

A multi-day storm dropped up to a foot of snow on parts of Michigan, causing crashes and spinouts on roadways.

Snowfall began Tuesday and continued Thursday morning, with the National Weather Service reporting 12 inches in the southwestern Michigan community of Paw Paw. More than 7 inches fell in Kalamazoo and Grand Rapids got more than 4 inches.

At least another inch is possible Thursday.

Ice jams prompted a flood advisory for the Pere Marquette River in Mason County and the Muskegon River in Osceola County.

In southeast Michigan, at least 6 inches of snow was reported in Monroe. Roads were slippery and snow-covered in Detroit and its suburbs for the Thursday morning commute. Totals of 5 to 8 inches are expected, with snow tapering off around midday.
