The early predictions on what we can expect this winter have been mixed. One source says to expect a cold and snowy winter, while another states we could have another mild winter.
According to the Farmers' Almanac, the Great Lakes region should be snowier and colder than average this winter. The Almanac predicts the region will get its first snow on Nov. 8, and that a snow storm bringing more than eight inches of snow will hit sometime between Jan. 20-23.
The article states that meteorologists with the National Weather Service in White Lake are tracking El Nino conditions. If there is an El Nino this winter, conditions in Michigan will likely be drier and warmer than most average winters.
