The weather service in Marquette reported Thursday that the Lake Superior port city had gone 197 days without reaching 60 degrees (15.5 degrees Celsius), breaking the previous record of 196 days set in 1970.

Jim Salzwedel is observation program leader with the weather service's Marquette bureau. He said Sunday that the city's cold streak ended at 198 days on Saturday, when the temperature reached 65 degrees (18.3 Celsius) in Marquette.

Before Saturday, the last time it had reached 60 degrees (15.5 degrees Celsius) in Marquette was last Oct. 3.

Marquette's weather service observations go back to 1962.
