East Lansing hit with about four inches of snow Friday morning

About four inches of snow has fallen upon East Lansing this morning, but not much else is expected for the rest of the day, according to the National Weather Service in Grand Rapids.

Snow started falling this morning between 5 a.m. and 6 a.m. and a heavy dose of snow came in between 8 a.m and 9:30 a.m., said Ernie Ostuno, a meteorologist at the National Weather Service in Grand Rapids.

Only flurries and freezing dribble are expected the rest of the day, nothing that will accumulate into snow, Ostuno said.

Director of Public Works Todd Sneathen said the snow plows have been on the streets since 5:30 a.m. and will be out clearing the roads for the rest of the day.

As of 12:30 p.m., there have been three reported weather-related accidents on campus, and three in East Lansing, with no major injuries reported, according to East Lansing police Capt. Jeff Murphy.

Staff reporter Darcie Moran contributed to this report.
