Snow Storm Blankets Starke County

A snow storm Friday night and early Saturday morning left varying inches of snow in Starke County. Anywhere from three to 11 inches fell depending on where you were in the county. Northeastern Starke County received the heaviest amount of snow, as a band stretched from lower Michigan into Indiana. The Starke County Commissioners issued a Level 2 Travel Advisory for the area and pulled the snow plows at 2:00 p.m. Saturday afternoon and they resumed duties at 5:00 a.m. Sunday morning. The Commissioners have since lifted that Level 2 Travel Advisory.

Walkerton received 10 inches of snow, St. Joseph, Michigan got 20.5 inches, and Stevensville, Michigan received 18 inches of snow.

The snow started Friday as a cold front system approached Indiana and then lake effect kicked in bringing widely different amounts.
