November 18, 2014 - 10:05 pm update – The lake effect snow has really been kicking in this week with 12+ inches on Monday and Tuesday in the snow belt regions of Northern Lower Michigan – the region west and Gaylord and north to the Mackinac Bridge has the most snow. Lake Superior snow belt regions of the U.P. have also been hit by heavy amounts of lake effect snow this week.
The Western U.P. has received more than 50 inches of snow in many areas and all of the snow belt regions in the U.P. have significant amounts of snow on the ground.
More snow is expected for the rest of the week with a warm up expected this weekend with the possibility of rain in some areas on Sunday.
SNOWMOBILE TRAILS ARE NOT OPEN. Most snowmobile trails in Michigan officially open on December 1, 2014 if there is sufficient snow. If you choose to snowmobile before December 1, please have good local knowledge of where riding is permissible and do not trespass on private property.
NOTE FROM Michigan Snowmobile Association – Remember with all this glorious white around us that the Michigan Snowmobile Trail System Does Not officially open until Dec 1 !! Be courteous to our hunters and not operate a snowmobile in an area open to public hunting ( state land) during the Nov 15-30 firearm deer season from 7am to 11am and from 2pm to 5pm. Should you choose to ride across private property or around gates you will be trespassing! Don’t be THAT guy and tick off our land owners!
We’ll keep you updated…
