Swath of Mid-April Snow Stretches Across Great Lakes Region:

Nothing says spring quite like a little bit of mid-April snow, right? A swath of snow stretches from central Illinois to northeast Michigan in this April 15, 2019, view from GOES East. While Chicago is no stranger to snow in April, yesterday’s total for O’Hare International Airport reached 5.3 inches, making it the second snowiest calendar day on record for this late in the season. The National Weather Service in Chicago noted on Twitter that the record of 5.4 inches was set on April 16, 1961.

The dose of winter weather also led to thousands of flight cancelations in the Chicago-area and prompted the Chicago Cubs to postpone their game against the Los Angeles Angelson on Sunday, according to local media reports

While the cold air that got caught behind the recent blizzard generally dropped anywhere from 3 to 6 inches of snow across portions of the Great Lakes region, there were a few impressive snow totals. Sylvester, Mich. led the way with 9.1 inches, while Big Rapids, Mich., and Union Grove, Wisc. came in a close second with 9 inches. 

This GeoColor-enhanced imagery was created by NOAA's partners at the Cooperative Institute for Research in the Atmosphere. The GOES East geostationary satellite, also known as GOES-16, provides high-resolution atmospheric imagery of Earth's Western Hemisphere, including North and South America, from 22,000 miles in space.
