MARQUETTE – The U.P. was the witness to a variety of weather during the last 24 hours.
Portions of the U.P. were under a tornado watch, including Marquette County. Though there were not any declared tornados, there were reports of wind damage- with gusts reaching 60 mph. Waves were reported to have reached as high as 13 feet.
Meteorologists at the National Weather Service say the current weather pattern is pretty typical for this time of year.
“I wouldn’t be surprised if we get another couple two or three stronger storms through the rest of fall,” said Jonathan Voss, Forecaster for the National Weather Service of Marquette. “As you get later into October and early November I mean, climatologically, is always a time where we get fairly strong storms on the lake.”
Members of the forecasting team also got a jump start on winter this year, placing snow stakes for measuring snow depth- getting ready for this year’s first snowfall.
