After an unusually hot and humid summer, Michigan may see fall come early with below average temperature.
According to a Fall Outlook Report from the The Weather Company, Michigan, along with the majority of the Midwest, will see cooler than normal fall weather from September through November. The southern half of the country, along with the northeast, will experience an average or slightly above average autumn.
Researchers have used the weather conditions from 1995-96 to help generate their estimates for the upcoming fall and winter. “That season was particularly cold during late fall and into winter,” wrote the Weather Channel, though it also noted that the upcoming weather shift likely won’t be as severe as it was in the mid-90’s.
This report comes as a particularly hot summer rolls on in the Great Lakes State, which saw 19 of the first 20 days in August reach above average temperatures.
