Episode Narrative An arctic air mass pouring south out of Canada generated lake effect snow showers along the south shore of Lake Superior for a few days. The heaviest snow fell across Iron County between the evening of December 4th and the afternoon of December 6th. By the afternoon of the 6th, areas in the Gogebic Range had received 12 to 18 inch accumulations. When the lake effect snow finally abated late on December 7th, amounts over 20 inches were common along the higher terrain of central Iron County. Gile reported 21.4 inches and Montreal reported 19 inches of snow.
