Spring storm breaks Detroit seasonal snowfall record

Posted: Updated:

FLINT, Mich. (AP) - A spring storm that's left roads slippery across Michigan has shattered Flint's seasonal snowfall record.

The National Weather Service says that as of 2 a.m. Tuesday eight-tenths of an inch had fallen, pushing the seasonal total to 83.4 inches. That exceeded the previous seasonal record for Flint of 82.9 inches that was set in the winter of 1974-1975.

And in Detroit the 3.1 inches of snow that fell Monday night into Tuesday morning brought this winter's total to 94.8 inches, topping the old record of 93.6 inches set during the winter of 1880-81 according to the Detroit News.

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.
