Well, it's inevitable. Even though it happens every year at this time, Michigan residents seeing the first measurable snowfall of the season is chilling news.

It probably comes as no surprise that Upper Peninsula residents were the first ones in the state to see snow this year. The National Weather Service office in Marquette broke the news Saturday (10/28), noting on X that it might be time to dig the snow tools out of the back of the car.

"Some of us might want to take a few minutes and locate the ice scraper/snow brush this morning. First measurable snow of the season at NWS Marquette," the NWS Marquette office said.

They went on to note that while snow did indeed fall in the UP, accumulation was limited to elevated surfaces because the ground is still warm.

Michigan Snow is Later Than Usual This Year

While this year's first measurable snowfall of the season occurred three days before Halloween, the National Weather Service says the first snow is actually running a little bit behind.

On average, the first date of measurable snow is October 17 in Negaunee Township.

In the Northern Lower Peninsula, a couple of inches of snow is possible from Gaylord to Traverse City, while Southeast Michigan residents may only see a few flurries on Halloween.
