In Flint, 1.3 inches had fallen as of Tuesday morning, pushing the seasonal total to 83.9 inches. That tops the previous Flint seasonal record of 82.9 inches from the winter of 1974-1975.

The latest storm sent temperatures that were in the mid-70s a day earlier tumbling below freezing by Tuesday morning. Along rivers in a wide swath of the Lower Peninsula, flood warnings are in effect.
