IRON MOUNTAIN — Residents still digging out from Tuesday’s winter storm will have even more snow to shovel by this evening, as the National Weather Service issued a winter weather advisory today for an additional 2 to 4 inches.

Iron Mountain received 7.9 inches of snow Tuesday, according to meteorologist Justin Titus with the NWS office in Negaunee Township.

The Iron Mountain-Kingsford Wastewater Treatment Plant in Breitung Township recorded 7 inches and the West Iron County Sewer Authority in Caspian reported 6 inches.

Dickinson County, along with Florence and Marinette counties in Wisconsin, remain under a winter weather advisory until 3 p.m. today. While Iron County does not have any active advisories, the area will see some snow, Titus said.

Snow accumulation today should increase from west to east, Titus said, with western Iron County seeing an extra 2 inches and Dickinson County getting between 3 and 4 more inches.

Conditions prompted all local schools to cancel classes for the day. Breitung Township Schools already had a planned day off for a teacher in-service.

Local law enforcement agencies reported some vehicles in the ditch Tuesday, but no major accidents.

No more snowstorms are in this week’s forecast, according to NWS.
