The winter storm that brought snow to the southwestern quadrant of our viewing area last night is now heading off to the East Coast, where it will create more snow-havoc in the nation's capital. While most of our area was spared the brunt of the winter storm, folks along and southwest of a line from South Haven to Kalamazoo to Coldwater saw enough snow to make things interesting.
The heaviest snowfall was in Berrien County, where 6.8" were measured in St. Joseph, and 4.0" fell in Stevensville. A sampling of other reports from West Michigan include 2.5" in Sturgis and 2.0" in Paw Paw. Kalamazoo saw a burst of snow for about an hour last night, but it didn't amount to much more than a light coating on the ground.
You might be surprised at just how much snow fell very close to West Michigan. For example, as of 1:30 this morning (Wednesday), North Webster, Indiana (about 10 miles south of Elkhart), measured 11", Fort Wayne was reporting 10", and South Bend about 8". Chicago also took a big hit from the storm. Both Midway and O'Hare airports were slammed with 9" of snow. Several double-digit accumulations were reported in the city's western and northern suburbs. Southern Wisconsin saw between 6 and 9" of snow; Minnesota also took a shot, with a snow emergency being declared in several cities around Minneapolis. Up to ten inches of snow were reported in the Twin Cities.
With the winter storm in our rear view mirror, it looks like the weather for the rest of this week -- and through the weekend -- will be pretty quiet; no storms are on the offing, for now. A warm up begins Friday taking our temps to the 40s over the weekend. Another storm may be lining West Michigan up by early next week. Stay tuned!

On the heels of the winter storm that brushed West Michigan last night, we'll continue to see considerably cloudy skies today. Temps will remain cooler than average, with highs in the middle 30s.
