So what can Mid-Michigan expect as the winter season approaches?
TV5's Bill Walsh talked with Chief Meteorologist Doug Moats about what is in store for the upcoming winter season.
"Long-range forecasting is one of the most difficult things for a meteorologist to do because it's like predicting the future with very limited information," said Moats.
Moats is looking at two main weather patterns that can influence our winter here in mid-Michigan. One weather pattern has to do with the arctic, which can bring cold air to our region. The other pattern has to do with the jet stream. Looking at these weather patterns, Doug is putting together his winter forecast.
Doug says the Tri-Cities may experience temperatures slightly below normal, with above average snowfall. In the Flint area, the winter will likely be similar to the Tri-Cities with below normal temps and above average snowfall. As for the Thumb, Doug is forecasting near normal temps. He says the Thumb may be the hardest hit with snowfall out of the three regions of mid-Michigan.
All in all, it is what we expect for winter in Michigan…cold and snow.
