See where Flint's snowfall this winter ranks all-time

By  | 

FLINT (WJRT) (3/8/2018) - Seemingly endless snowfall has piled up this winter to the tune of more than 6 feet.

Flint only say 2.7 inches Thursday, while more than 9 inches fell in some parts of the Thumb. With the daily record of 4.9 inches of snow Wednesday, Flint has seen nearly 8 inches of the white stuff this week

Flint started the week with about 68 inches of snowfall this winter -- good enough for the 12th snowiest winter on record.

Then a low pressure system blocked by a powerful nor'easter along the Eastern Seaboard sat almost stationary over the northern Great Lakes, spinning up snow showers Wednesday and Thursday.

As of Thursday evening, Flint has seen 75 inches of snow this winter. That's enough for the seventh snowiest of all time -- 2 inches shy of the top five and 8.9 inches shy of the all-time record set in 2013-2014.

A lot of people are ready for the snow to end.

"I'm tired of it. I'm ready for it to be gone for sure," Norman Jones said as he picked up his kindergartener from International Academy in Flint on Thursday.

The forecast calls for the snow to end for much of Mid-Michigan Thursday evening. Then snowfall will be scarce through the weekend.

The next chance of measurable snow comes on Monday and Tuesday with lake effect primarily over the Thumb region, but accumulations likely won't be very significant. Locations farther inland could see some passing snow, as well.

After that, high temperatures will build through the 30s into the 40s through next week.
