IRON MOUNTAIN – Snow accumulations of up to six inches are expected in parts of the Upper Peninsula today, but little to no precipitation is forecasted for the local area.

Dave Petrovich, meteorologist with the National Weather Service in Marquette, said that overnight snowfall in Dickinson and Iron counties ranged from a trace to about a tenth of an inch.

Residents should not see much more snow throughout the rest of the day.

“We may see some isolated snow showers in the northern parts of Iron County, but that’s about it,” said Petrovich.

Petrovich said that although temperatures will drop into the 20s today, they should warm up into the 40s for the rest of the week. The next possible snow for the local area is not expected until Friday morning, he added.

Elsewhere in the Upper Peninsula, between four and six inches of snow are forecasted today for the area east of Munising and north of M-28.

Marquette is expected to receive between an inch and an inch and a half of snow today.
