The storm, which arrived in Michigan on Thursday, was part of a system that began in the Rockies earlier in the week and has been blamed for deaths in at least five states. A 71-year-old man was killed Friday in St. Clair County when a Jeep lost control on a snow-covered road and slammed into his pickup.

Between 1 and 3 inches of snow fell across the Detroit area Friday after many places received more than an inch of rain the day before, according to the National Weather Service in White Lake Township. Temperatures on Saturday afternoon hovered around freezing.

The heaviest snowfall — a foot or more in some areas — was in the northern Lower Peninsula, Upper Peninsula and western part of the state, according to the weather service.
