MARQUETTE - Winter showed its head today as lake-effect snow hit most of the northern part of the Upper Peninsula.

"Here at the office we had just about 6 inches," said Mike Dutter, meteorologist with the National Weather Service in Negaunee Township. "We certainly had reports out towards Trenary of 19 inches since 10 p.m. last night."

Around Marquette between 3 to 6 inches of snow had fallen by 4 p.m. and the snow is predicted to keep falling throughout the evening. Up to 10 more inches could fall throughout the evening, Dutter said.

With sloppy weather comes car accidents. According to the Michigan State Police, there have been numerous "fender benders" in Marquette County due to poor weather conditions, but no serious accidents.
