This winter is expected to be wetter (snowier) than average across Michigan.

The newest winter outlook for the entire nation has been released by National Oceanic Atmospheric Administration (NOAA) and if the long-term outlook is correct, we can expect it to be wetter (snowier) for most of Michigan.

For much of the United States this winter, it is forecasted that the nation will experience warmer-than average-temperatures. However, for Michigan, NOAA said the western Great Lakes have “equal chances for below-, near- or above-average temperatures.”

According to NOAA, the state has about a 60-percent chance of having a wetter-than-average winter. The weather is going to be cold as usual and it’s going to be wetter than usual, which probably means snowier than usual.

Skiers and winter sports lovers might love this news, but those long commutes could mean a more stressful winter of driving in Michigan.
