Snow or No Snow in Michigan?
Everyone who lives in Michigan knows that the weather can change at any time or any second without warning. One minute, it can be raining. The next, there is a gorgeous sun out with a wind at perfect speed to fly a kite. The ultimate question that native Michiganders wonder: “Will it be snowy during winter time?”
El Niño welcomes the United States with its warm waters in 2015, and its effects are very climatic. One of the effects is warmer winter temperatures this season. This warmth travels from the Pacific Northwest to the northern Plains and into the Great Lakes. NOAA states that most areas in Lower Michigan has a greater than 50% chance of warmer than normal temperatures. Areas more southeast such as Detroit have a lesser chance of this abnormal temperature at the chance of 40%. Another effect of El Niño is a drier winter in Michigan. Precipitation will decrease and is less likely.
Overall, Michigan is notorious for its cold weather and citizens of the state should not worry about having to change out of their winter coats or gloves. Will it snow on Christmas? Who knows really? It may or may not. But its chances of precipitation are lower, but still possible. Regardless, the winter season still has many activities to offer.
