What Michigan City Is The 8th Snowiest City in America?
Honestly, I would have to fully agree with this observation!
Grand Rapids is the 8th snowiest city in the country.
Redfin shared that something that all Grand Rapids natives understand is the reason for the snow.
That lake-effect snow is something different.
Grand Rapids, MI, is the eight-snowiest city in the U.S. Similar to many other cities on the list, the city sees most of its snow from lake effect storms. Grand Rapids is just to the east of Lake Michigan, meaning if cold air is blowing from the west or southwest, snow is likely to fall in the area. However, these wind patterns usually only last for around 12 hours at a time, meaning the region sees much lower snowfall totals than the top spots on this list.
Redfin also added that the average cost of buying a house in Grand Rapids is below the national average.
Buying a home in Grand Rapids will cost an average of $280,000, below the national average. And if you’re thinking of renting an apartment, the monthly rent price for a one-bedroom apartment averages $1,250.
