To the excitement of most Michiganders, a recent, seasonal forecast by the NOAA shows that the state is expected to have a much warmer and drier fall than normal. This leaves an extra couple weeks for residents to enjoy their favorite summer outdoor activities.

The data shows that eastern Michigan has a 40 to 50 percent chance of being warmer than average fall temperatures. Western Michigan has a 33 to 40 percent chance of being warmer than normal this fall. 

Furthermore, precipitation levels are not expected to be higher than normal and actually have a chance to be lower than normal. 

These predicted patterns follow a heat wave that swept across the country earlier this summer causing record temperatures.
