Intense lake effect snow bands pounded northern and western Michigan affecting morning and afternoon travel. Strong westerly winds resulted in very low visibility to near zero at times from blowing snow. The banding nature of the snow resulted in peculiar scenes where bright sunlight was occurring amidst heavy snows as the clouds were concentrated only near the snow bands with relatively clear skies elsewhere behind a strong cold front that brought wind chills that fell below -30F in some areas of the upper Midwest.
