Some October snow in the forecast for Michigan’s Upper Peninsula

You’re not going to believe this, but snow is invading Michigan’s Upper Peninsula.

Okay, you probably do believe that. It is October, after all. This is fairly normal for the Yoopers. Actually, on Oct. 6, 2000, the U.P. recorded 12 inches of snow at the NWS office in Negaunee Township.

The National Weather Service in Marquette said snow could be mixing in with some rain today, along with some morning lake effect snow showers on Friday.

“Plan on blustery, colder conditions today with temperatures falling after early morning highs in the upper 40s to mid 50s. Scattered to numerous rain showers today will transition to scattered lake-effect rain and snow showers tonight. Lingering scattered lake-effect rain and snow showers will end Friday.”

No, they won’t be shoveling anything. For now.

Meanwhile, in Metro Detroit, we’re getting ready for a drop in temperatures today, with some much-needed rain on the way. But no snow!
