ISHPEMING, Mich. (AP) - The National Weather Service says more than 3 ½ feet of snow has fallen on parts of Michigan’s Upper Peninsula in a record-setting pre-winter storm.

Late Wednesday morning, 42.5 inches had fallen since Monday in Marquette County near Ishpeming. Generally, 2 feet or more fell in parts of the Upper Peninsula with lower totals along Lake Michigan.

The weather service’s Marquette-area office reports a record 16 inches of snow fell Tuesday, equal to 1.89 inches of rain. That broke a record set in 1977.

Meteorologist Justin Titus says the storm has left the area, but there could be lake-effect snow of 8 to 15 inches through Saturday.

Temperatures have plunged around the state, with Detroit’s high of 65 degrees Tuesday falling to 40 before dawn Wednesday and heading downward.
