NOTES:

  1. This is an informal record of new snowfall measured at a private residence a few blocks from downtown Marquette, Mich.
  2. Measurements occur as time, health, and weather permits.
  3. 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.
  4. Single bulleted entries encompass the previous 24 hours. Multiple entries per day represent amount since last entry.
  5. A “trace” means snow fell but did not accumulate at least 0.1″.
  6. Liquid equivalent (melted snow/ice) measurements for each day can be found on the weather history page. Our gauge is checked daily.
  7. To view official snow observations for the city, please visit NOAA NOWData and select “Marquette, MI” as the “Location”, “Daily data for a month” as the “Product”, select the current month under “Options” and press “Go”.
  8. To view reports from around the area, visit the NWS Snowfall Reports page.
  9. Measurements occur on white, plastic 16″ x 16″ snow board(s) placed in a relatively open area within a city lot containing no structure over 15′ tall.
  10. Local online media are free to use this information as long as there is a link back to this page. TV/radio reports must credit the source (i.e. “courtesy of marquetteweather.com”). For NWS Marquette, our CoCoRaHS station location “1 SSW Marquette” is sufficient.
