Patch of Snow on Mt. Ripley Lasts to June 18


It’s almost gone, but you can still see the patch of snow on Mt. Ripley, near Houghton in the Upper Peninsula of Michigan.

You’ve really got to look close in the center of the pictures from Tuesday evening, but there is still a dot of snow left. It should disappear today (Wed. June 19). Monday, Houghton had a high temp. of 67° and a low temp. of 43°. Tuesday the high was 66° and the low was 47°. The Houghton Airport reported 192.3″ of snow this winter. Tamarack had the highest total in the U.P. this winter with 362.8″ (5th highest season snowfall ever in Upper Michigan). We’ll keep tracking it!
