May in the U.P.May 1st, 2013 at 8:20 pm by Bill Steffen under Bill's Blog, Weather
This is a still off one of the trail cameras at Michigan Tech. Here’s some snow depths from the morning of Weds. May 1: 20″ Big Bay, 18″ Hoist Basin, 11″ Atlantic Mine and 1.6 miles ESE of Houghton, 8″ Watton and 3″ Marquette. While we were in the low-mid 80s, it was only in the mid-upper 30s in the western U.P. this Weds. They’ll be (snow) skiing this Saturday at Boyne Mt., and Mt. Bohemia (where they have had 308″ of snow this winter and where they say they may very well be open the weekend of the 11th-12th!) are open this weekend. Ski Brule just closed. On their website they say: “Conditions were one of the best on record!”. Also, got this from Craig James: “The low temperature at Umiat AK was -25F this AM and the low was a bone-chilling -24 at Deadhorse AK. These temperatures may have established new monthly records for the coldest temperature recorded in Alaska during the month of May!” Here’s the Snowman Cam from Krupp’s Resort at Twin Lakes.
