MARQUETTE, MI - (Great Lakes Radio News)- A nationwide test of the Emergency Alert System, commonly known as EAS, is scheduled for tomorrow, November 9th, 2011, at 2-pm eastern time. This is the first time that this system will be tested on a cross-country level.
The EAS is used by local authorities in times of emergency to warn citizens about an impending situation. Most of the time that you would hear an EAS announcement in our area it has to do with severe weather.
On that note, Matt Zika, from the National Weather Service Office in Negaunee Township, joined Mark and Walt in the Morning today to discuss this test and how EAS works both nationally and on a local level.

"I'm pretty confident that this is going to be in the top 10 as far as coldest winters at any (weather monitoring) station in the U.P.," said Matt Zika, meteorologist at the National Weather Service's Marquette office, adding some U.P. weather monitoring stations have records stretching back to the 1880s.

That's according to Matt Zika, Meteorologist with the National Weather Service office in Negaunee. "This year has been a little bit different because there's been a substantial snow pack across the southern U.P. along the WI border," Zika said.
A record cold winter and early spring kept a more consistent snow pack on the ground and it stayed longer than most would like. According to Zika, "The snow that began falling back in November has been on the ground for the entire season and thus the appearance that they have more than they probably should."

While heavy snow, extreme cold, ice and wind routinely affect Upper Michigan during winter, it is still important for residents to be reminded of and to prepare for the dangers associated with winter weather, said Matt Zika, Warning Coordination Meteorologist at the National Weather Service in Marquette.
Similar trends were seen across Upper Michigan with the winter temperatures averaging well above normal and snowfall well below normal, Zika said.
While the outcomes didn't necessarily match the pre-winter prognostications, it highlighted the challenges involved with long term seasonal weather forecasting, he said.
"At this point in time, forecasting an outlook for this coming winter is even more challenging," Zika said in a statement.
