Storm breaks Detroit, Flint snowfall records

ROMULUS, MI (AP) -

A spring storm that's left roads slippery across Michigan has shattered seasonal snowfall records in Detroit and Flint.  

The National Weather Service says as of 6 a.m. Tuesday 3.1 inches fell at Detroit Metropolitan Airport in Romulus, pushing the seasonal total to 94.8 inches. That exceeded the previous Detroit seasonal record of 93.6 inches from the winter of 1880-1881.  

As of 2 a.m. Tuesday, eight-tenths of an inch fell in Flint, pushing the seasonal total to 83.4 inches. That exceeded the previous Flint seasonal record of 82.9 inches from the winter of 1974-1975.  

The spring snow came after a weather roller coaster Monday, with rivers overflowing their banks, hundreds of thousands of people losing power and mid-70s temperatures in some parts of the state tumbling below freezing by Tuesday morning.
