Three Rivers storm total – 12.5 inches

A winter storm dropped 1 1/2 feet of snow as it passed over Michigan’s Lower Peninsula, snarling traffic and extending the weekend for children at hundreds of schools.
The National Weather Service says 16.7 inches fell at Detroit Metropolitan Airport in Romulus on Sunday and Monday. The agency says it was the No. 3 snow on record for Detroit and the area’s most since a 19.3-inch dump Dec. 1-2, 1974.
The Kalamazoo and Battle Creek areas got the most, mostly ranging from 12-18 inches. A total of 18.5 inches came in for Battle Creek. Twenty inches was reported in downtown Kalamazoo, but the weather service says blowing a drifting snow may have inflated that measurement. The storm total in Three Rivers was 12.5 inches.
Ann Arbor got 14.1 inches. The Grand Rapids and Lansing areas had reports of 9-11 inches.  (AP)
