UPPER PENINSULA, Mich. (WJMN) – Seven months ago, the first snowflakes of the season fell in the Upper Peninsula. Now, after the darkest and cold days of the year, winter weather continues to linger in the region.

It’s been a long season. From a heavy snow in October that melted before Halloween to a blizzard on Christmas, we’ve seen a little bit of everything. There was even a week in April of record or near record warmth, which caused its own set of challenges with flooding.
The snow from this first week of May will start to melt as temperatures warm up later this week. Michigan State Police are reminding people to report flood damage by calling 211.
