Cold is coming finally tomorrow and thru Sunday. Maybe a foot of snow?...all depends on where you live in the UP...most places nothing. I do think we will be sending the cold down to you folks. ( 10s to 20.) I think you can forget any snow.

Darstar,

I don't know how much we'll get down here, but they are forecasting for snow and some bad driving conditions the next few days. It's for sure going to get much colder. Today people were out riding bikes but that won't be the case starting tomorrow.

We're setting at 25 above normal for our daily high. We should be at 25 for a high and 6 for our normal low.

We set in between most weather in MI being at the tip-of-the-mitt. Most all our weather does come from the north northwest, the same as Marquette, but we also at times get clipped by the southern stuff.

Anyone remember when 5-10 inches of snow was called "snow expected", and not what they now call a "storm"?

Well so far the forecast has been right, at least where I'm at.
Received about 7 inches so far and still dumping it down. The snow doesn't show on any radars though, clouds too low. Temp is down to 14 and dropping. Winds have been up to 25mph making a nice cool -21.
Finally, feels like winter.
