(MARQUETTE, Mich.) — Winter has come early in northern Michigan.

More than 2 inches of snow fell in Marquette, Michigan, overnight, according to the National Weather Service, coating the fall leaves with a thin layer of winter snow.

The city saw about 2.5 inches of snow, the NWS said — marking the highest daily total this early in the season since Oct. 17, 1976.

The last time Marquette received a daily snowfall of 2 inches or more in October was on Oct. 26, 2001, according to the NWS.

Snow may have already hit the Midwest, but there’s still two more months of fall. Winter doesn’t officially start until Dec. 22.
