How's your Michigan winter going so far?

Are you sick of the snow and frigid temperatures, yet? How about carefully walking across treacherously slippery sidewalks? Or maybe those higher than normal heating bills?

If any of that has you wishing for warmer weather, you may not need to wish for very much longer.

It's the next week that we'll really see that difference in temperature. The 8-14 day temperature outlook for February 21st - 27th  predicts that Lansing (and the rest of the lower peninsula) will see temperatures "leaning above" and "likely above" normal. See that pattern in the graphic, below.

Beware, because with this warmer weather we could also see rain instead of snow. I'm sure none of us are too mad about the possibility of rain instead of snow. However, rain in combination with snowmelt could lead to some flooding that we'll need to deal with.

Of course, this is Michigan, and the weather here is known to change on a dime. So, we may need to wait until next week to see if these warmer temps are actually coming to town. Until then. stay bundled up and keep thinking about those warmer temps ahead.
