A band of rain and snow moved through parts of Lower Michigan Sunday – east of a line from Grand Haven to Mt. Pleasant. North of that line it was just cloudy and cool. Southeast of that line there was a mix of rain and snow and around 1-2″ of snow fell from Kalamazoo east to Detroit. With surface temperatures above freezing and the ground being warm (the 2″ soil temperature is 40 degrees), the snow pretty much melted as it fell, especially on main roads. Here’s radar:
