Portions of WI, MI, IL, and IN had notable precipitation in the
form of snow in the past 24 hours.  Areas that had water
equivalence worth mentioning were primarily the lake affect areas
around Lake Superior and Lake Michigan. The heaviest
precipitation in the service area came along eastern Lake
Michigan`s shore.  Amounts ranged from a tenth of an inch water
equivalence to around eight tenths of an inch on the Door
Peninsula Wisconsin.  The remaining shores of the Great Lakes saw
between one to three tenths of an inch water equivalence for the
most part.
