A low pressure area over northern Lake Michigan dropped heavy snow over portions of south central Upper Michigan on the evening of the 23rd and morning of the 24th. Reported 12-hour snow amounts included 8 inches at Powers in Menominee County and 8-10 inches in the Gladstone area of Delta County. Deepening low pressure over the eastern Great Lakes and eastern Ontario helped draw colder Canadian air across Lake Superior from the 24th through the 26th.

Ironwood measured 10 inches of snow in 24 hours on the 4th and 5th while Newberry received 10 inches in 12 hours on the 5th. Blowing and drifting of snow on side roads forced the closure of Tahquamenon Area schools on the 6th.
