Houghton Snowfall

posted in: Michigan Weather Forecast | 7

Looking at the webcams to the right you can see (as of 8am) snow at Mackinaw and Houghton.  As of today they have seen 8 to 12  inches of snow this month in Houghton most of which is still on the ground.  The screenshot for the feature image was from this morning with the streetlights still on.

Record snowfall was 356 inches in the 1978-79 season and the least amount was 81.3 inches in 1930-31.  Below is the graphic of observed snowfall as of the 10th thanks to mainly Lake Superior.


Snow-pack continues to build over Canada, Russia and northern Europe.  Below are the snow totals as of 11/5 for Canada.  These are in centimeters – a centimeter is .3937 of an inch.  Divide the centimeter depth by 2.54 to convert to inches.  I will have more on the current snow pack on Thursday in my weekly winter weather forecast.


Yesterday we had mostly sunny skies here in Otsego which was a welcome change.  All of the snow has melted, however we could see more tonight and tomorrow from lake effect mainly south and west of Grand Rapids.

Great post. I always think the webcam of Houghton looks like a post card. It looks like an old fashion small town.
