The National Weather Service says up to seven inches of snow is expected to cover the Detroit area Saturday, a day after the region ended January with 39.1 inches of snow -- its snowiest month ever.

DETROIT (AP) - The weather outside continues to be frightful for parts of Michigan even after some areas experienced their snowiest Januaries.

The National Weather Service says up to seven inches of snow is expected to cover the Detroit area Saturday, a day after the region ended January with 39.1 inches of snow -- its snowiest month ever.

Meteorologist Steven Freitag says the previous record was 38.4 in February 1908.

Flint's 32.9 inches of snow also was a January record.

Grand Rapids finished with 41.9 inches of snow, short of the record 46.8 in January 1999. Meteorologist Brandon Hoving says Saturday's snow started falling about 3 a.m. and could reach 4 to 7 inches.

The Northern Lower Peninsula received about 39.5 inches, far short of the 74.1 that fell in January 2004.
