Snow A No-Show For Much Of State’s Lower Peninsula

GRAND RAPIDS, Mich. (AP) – Grand Rapids is going to extremes – from its snowiest November to what could be the least snowy December.

According to reports in Grand Rapids only three-tenths of an inch of snow has fallen this month in the western Michigan city. The drought starkly contrasts with November, which logged 31 inches.

Little or at least less snow has been common this month across the Lower Peninsula. Detroit newspapers say trace amounts have fallen in the area, and it’s in the running to be the least snowy Detroit December in 125 years.

National Weather Service data also shows about an inch has fallen in Muskegon and Lansing.

Weather service officials say the frigid, Arctic air that invaded last winter has remained over Alaska and northern Canada in recent weeks.
