We’ve got good news…and we’ve got bad news.
I’d tell you the bad news first, but the truth is that whether the news is good or bad will depend on the reader. So, I’ll share with you the news and you can decide which one is good and which one is bad. The Weather Channel has released its 2019-2020 Winter Outlook from the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA). Read on to learn the good and the bad of winter 2019-2020.
According to The Weather Channel’s latest longterm forecast, December in Michigan will actually have “near or slightly above average temperatures.” For those of you who are not cold weather people, that may be great news. For those of you who dream of a chilly snow covered Christmas morning, this update may be a little disappointing. But don’t lose hope yet–we could still have a white Christmas.
Winter lovers rejoice because after a slightly warmer than usual December, you will get your fair share of frosty temps come the new year. Those of you who begin looking forward to spring as soon as October hits will need to (once again) practice your patience…and maybe invest in some new winter gear.
The NOAA winter outlook is also predicting a possibility of higher than average precipitation in our area. So, make sure your shovels are ready!
Don’t let any warm(ish) temperatures in December fool you, winter will still be coming, and it is important that your home is ready. Don’t forget to schedule a furnace inspection, add extra insulation, and make sure doors and windows are properly sealed.
