Snow cleanup underway

ISHPEMING — Snow, snow and more snow.

More of the Upper Peninsula received a significant amount of snowfall that started Tuesday afternoon and last most of Wednesday and into the afternoon.

Many parts of Marquette County received around eight inches of snow. Parts of western Marquette County and the Huron Mountains received more than eight inches.

Overall, the snowstorm did live up to all of the hype.

“Part of the northwest, especially the northwest part of the county, we ended up getting the same amount of moisture as we had in the forecast,” said Todd Kluber, a meteorologist for the National Weather Service.

“The snow wasn’t as fluffy as we thought it would be. It ended up being very wet, so that did cut into the snow totals. With the upcoming week, we’re still watching a few upcoming chances of snow just about every other day, just light amounts coming through a couple of inches or a few inches at a time,” Kluber added.

At this time, many parts of the U.P. are well below their seasonal snowfall totals. Iron Mountain and Iron River are more than fifty percent below their usual snowfall amount for this time of the year.
