Sunny skies one year after U.P. blizzard

News

MARQUETTE, MIch. (WJMN) – At the time, many people were starting to feel the snow would never stop during the Winter storm that hit the Upper Peninsula on February 24, 2019.

But today, temperatures will be a tad colder with the clouds picking up the pace a little. More clouds move in tonight and we could see some freezing drizzle in the higher terrain of Marquette County and in the higher terrain of the far Western U.P. 

Welcome back winter Tuesday with a chance of snow and gusty winds, we do miss out on a winter storm with heavy snow to our south in Wisconsin and Lower Michigan. Tuesday night through Thursday night though we will see the lake effect snow steadily add up in some U.P. locations, the wind could also gust 20-25 MPH+ and that could cause some lower visibility.

Temperatures will turn colder starting Tuesday night and remain cold through Saturday. Some temperature moderation is possible for the second half of this upcoming weekend.
