It's May and it's still snowing in Michigan's Upper Peninsula

While southeast Michigan is battling floods on the first day of May, Michigan's Upper Peninsula is facing a different weather dilemma — snow.

About 3-4 inches of snow fell as of Wednesday morning, said Matt Zika, a meteorologist with the National Weather Service's Marquette office. Zika said the preliminary snow accumulation has already broken a 1.2-inch daily snowfall record set on May 1, 2005.

But it does not stop there. Zika said snow continues to fall and 6-7 inches is predicted by the end of the day into Thursday.

Drivers should expect low visibility and slippery areas on roads. In addition, the temperature is in the mid-30s, compared with a typical 50-degree weather at the beginning of May.
