Snow follows heavy rain in parts of southern Michigan

Storms brought heavy snow to parts of southern Michigan, with up to 10 inches reported in the Lansing area.

The National Weather Service says 7 to 9.5 inches of snow fell by Wednesday morning around Lansing. WLNS-TV reports 10 inches in St. Johns. Most Lansing-area schools were closed.
 

The snow came after heavy rains flooded some areas and roadways Tuesday. The storms left thousands without power.

The Saginaw area had reports of about 6 inches of snow. In southeast Michigan, the weather service says the Detroit area got anywhere from a dusting to about 3 inches. The weather service says snow totals in the Jackson and Battle Creek areas were up to 5 inches, while Kalamazoo had 3 to 4 inches. Grand Rapids, however, avoided the snow.
