The weather in the Keweenaw is unique due to the landmass (being a peninsula) and the lake effect. That is one of the reasons why the Keweenaw receives are larger amount of snow than the rest of Michigan (on average of 250-280 inches). As well, the weather in the lower portion of the Keweenaw (e.g. Houghton, Hancock, Calumet — 30-45 miles from the Lodge) can be different than the top of the Keweenaw (Copper Harbor).

Below is the weather from the National Weather Service and weather from our own weather station at the Lodge. Included at the bottom of the page is the clear sky chart for Copper Harbor.
