Snowy Tuesday, another storm on the way


Staff Writer

IRON MOUNTAIN – Several inches of snow fell in the local area Tuesday, and more is expected tonight into Thursday.

Jon Banitt, meteorologist with the National Weather Service (NWS) in Marquette, said that southern Dickinson County saw between two to two and a half inches of snow, while the northern part of the county and Iron County saw significantly less precipitation.

A total of 2.3 inches of snow was recorded at the Iron Mountain-Kingsford Wastewater Treatment Plant in Breitung Township.

The weather conditions caused roads to be snow-covered and slippery. Law enforcement officials from Dickinson and Florence counties reported several incidents of vehicles in the ditch, but no major accidents.

According to the NWS, local residents can expect another one to two inches of snow between tonight and Thursday.
