Snow on the Mt. Ripley webcam

Mt. Ripley   U.P Snowfall 2012-13Click on the image to enlarge or click here.   Take a close look a little more than 1/2 way down on the left side and you’ll still see (as of the evening of 6/14) a patch of snow on the Mt. Ripley skycam in the U.P.  The map on the right shows season snow totals from the U.P.  The snow season started slow and ended with many areas getting as much or more snow in meteorological spring than in meteorological winter!  You can see where the lake-effect snow really comes into play…from the Porcupine Mts. up thru the Keweenaw Peninsula, west of Marquette towards the higher elevations around Herman and east of Munising toward Grand Marais.  The water of deep Lake Superior takes a long time to moderate in the late spring.  As I write this early on 6/15, the west Lake Superior buoy shows a water temperature of 37.2 (only five degrees above ice!) and the north Lake Superior buoy is at 37.6.

    First! Thanks for the webcam pic. I was wondering if the snow was gone. How late has snow on the ground been reported in the UP?
