For you weather watchers, here is an early Noquemanon Ski Marathon weather report from our partners at the National Weather Service in Marquette:

Early indications suggest weather won’t play a huge role in this weekend’s races.  After today’s couple inches of snow, it looks like prospects of any additional significant snow this week are low…just some light on and off northwesterly wind lake effect. A front will cross the U.P. late Friday/Saturday with perhaps a dusting of snow then (inch or so).
The snow we have will not be going anywhere as it will be cold this week. Temperatures won’t be above 10 Wednesday and Thursday.  The air temperatures will be a little warmer Friday (teens) but it will be offset by a gusty southwest breeze. Wind chills will be in the -10 to 10 F range Friday afternoon.
Temperatures will probably start out around 10 in Ishpeming Saturday morning and climb through the teens perhaps hitting 20 in Marquette by afternoon.  It will continue to be breezy early…southwesterly before transitioning northwest late. Chilly, but nothing out of the ordinary for January in the U.P.
