DARK CLOUDS descend over Ironwood in the distance around 3 p.m. on Thursday, as seen from the U.S. 2 bridge that is under construction in Saxon, Wis. What had been a clear day turned dark at many locations across the Gogebic Range.


IRONWOOD - When it comes to the weather, statistics have a way of averaging out.

So while Ironwood had almost no rain for the first three weeks of May, downpours on Wednesday sent the monthly rainfall total nearly identical to the 117-year average.

A total of 1.41 inches of rain fell for the 24-hour period to 7 a.m. Thursday at the Gogebic-Iron Wastewater Treatment Plant weather station on the Montreal River, off Cloverland Drive.

Later Thursday, scattered thundershowers continued across the Gogebic Range, increasing the precipitation mark.
