- This is an informal record of new snowfall measured at a private residence a few blocks from downtown Marquette, Mich.
- Measurements occur as time, health, and weather permits using two white, plastic 16″ x 16″ snow boards placed in a relatively open area.
- Normal procedure during continuous snowfall is to measure no more than every 6 hours and clear the snow board(s). If spot measurements are performed, boards will be left uncleared until at least 6 hours elapses. If snowfall has tapered off or the observer’s schedule cannot accommodate, we may opt to measure sooner.
- When significant drifting or wind loss occurs, we may opt to report an estimate which will be noted as such. Estimates are based on liquid gauge amounts, observed & modeled snow-to-liquid ratios, NOAA computerized snowfall analysis, nearby reports, and eyeball surveys of our property.
- Single bulleted entries encompass the previous 24 hours. Multiple entries per day represent amount since last entry.
- A “trace” means snow fell but did not accumulate at least 0.1″.
- Liquid equivalent (melted snow/ice) measurements for each day can be found on the weather history page. Our gauge is checked daily.
