Michigan's Upper Peninsula hit by winter storm


HOUGHTON, Mich. — A late winter storm is dumping snow on Michigan's Upper Peninsula, with up to 2 feet forecast in places.

The National Weather Service says as of early today the Ironwood area had 7 to 10 inches and the Marquette area had 3 to 6 inches. Snow is to continue into Thursday, with 10 to 24 inches expected near Ironwood, Baraga and the Porcupine Mountains.

Heavy lake-effect snow is expected along Lake Superior. Occasional white-out conditions are forecast into Wednesday.

In parts of the northern Lower Peninsula, 6 to 9 inches of snow is forecast by Thursday morning. Some areas could see more than a foot.

Southern Michigan mostly will miss the snow, but icy roads led to Detroit-area crashes early today. West Michigan roads were slippery, delaying some schools.
