By Tuesday morning, 3.1 inches had fallen at Detroit Metropolitan Airport in Romulus. The weather service says that snowfall pushed the city's seasonal total to 94.8 inches, exceeding the previous record that stood for more than a century. In the winter of 1880-1881, 93.6 inches of snow fell.

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.
