Is anyone as sick of the Michigan winter as I am?

I am starting a support group to get through this together.

However, the Old Farmer's Almanac may have an update on how the summer will be looking for Michigan.

Old Farmer's Almanac Summer Predictions 2024

The Old Farmer's Almanac just released their annual summer weather prediction for Michigan.

From the findings, you can expect to see some wild weather.

"But rainfall will be above normal elsewhere—from the Deep South up through the Ohio Valley and the Upper Midwest, as well as from the mid-Atlantic coast up to New England."


What Does Old Farmer's Almanac Predict For Michigan Summers?

When it comes to Michigan's summer in 2024, it is giving hot and rainy.

A crazy combination!

Why are we getting such a wet summer this year?

Have you heard of the El Nino?

What Is An El Nino?

NOAA Climate shared,

"El Niño and La Niña are the warm and cool phases of a recurring climate pattern across the tropical Pacific—the El Niño-Southern Oscillation, or “ENSO” for short. The pattern shifts back and forth irregularly every two to seven years, bringing predictable shifts in ocean surface temperature and disrupting the wind and rainfall patterns across the tropics. These changes have a cascade of global side effects."

El Ninos on average will last between 9 and 12 months. However, they vary in strength and usually happen every 3 to 5 years.

How do you feel about the upcoming summer in Michigan?
