Overview

On Monday, December 11th, a clipper system tracked across Lake Superior and strengthened across the eastern portions of the lake bringing northerly gales to 45 knots behind the exiting system. This northerly flow allowed for moderate to heavy lake effect snow across the region through Tuesday December 12th. While numerous moderate to heavy snow bands where observed across Upper Michigan, a significant snow squall impacted the city of Marquette and areas east of M-553 late Monday through early Tuesday.  Snowfall amounts affected by the band totaled between 8-12 inches.
