The Old Farmer’s Almanac has released its long-range winter prediction for 2016-2017, and it appears some residual summer heat will warm Michiganders through spring.
The Almanac’s 200th edition, which is available for purchase in late August, calls for a warmer than average winter with above normal precipitation for the Great Lakes region.
The coldest periods will be in late December through early February, which is to be expected. The snowiest periods will be in mid-November, late December, early and late January, mid-February and early March.
Hey, it’s better than a Polar Vortex, right?
