These Michigan communities started 2022 with the most snowfall

The Detroit News

Parts of southeast Michigan started the new year with more than 4 inches of snowfall due to a low pressure system passing through the region.

The National Weather Service reported that 2 to 4 inches of snow fell from the Interstate 94 corridor to the Interstate 69 corridor from Saturday into Sunday, with southern Macomb County having the highest and most widespread totals at or slightly above 4 inches.

Roseville recorded the most snowfall with 4.2 inches followed by Burton in Genesee County with 4.1 inches and Algonac in St. Clair County with 4 inches, according to National Weather Service data. 

Meteorologist David Kook said the weather service had been expecting 3 to 5 inches of snowfall for several days, and issued a winter weather advisory Saturday morning urging motorists to "take it slow in ice and snow."

"It fell into line with the forecast," Kook said. "We get 2 to 4 and 3 to 5 inch snowstorms several times a year."
