The National Weather Service said 7 to 9.5 inches of snow fell by this morning around Lansing. That came after heavy rains flooded some areas Tuesday.

Winter storm watches were issued and the storms left thousands without power.

Tuesday’s rains closed several roadways, including part of the Southfield Freeway near Detroit.

The Saginaw area had reports of about 6 inches of snow. The weather service said the Detroit area got anywhere from a dusting to about 3 inches.

The weather service said snow totals in the Jackson and Battle Creek areas were up to 5 inches, while Kalamazoo had 3-4 inches.

Grand Rapids and the Lakeshore, however, avoided the snow.
