Winter Weather Outlook


The National Weather Service is predicting normal temperatures with above normal snowfall for the upcoming 2003-2004 winter. A normal winter in Muskegon sees 56 days where the high temperature does not reach freezing and 8 feet 10 inches of snow falls.

2/3rds of the way through November temperatures are + 1.2 degrees. They’ve ranged from a low of 20 degrees up to 63.

Rain fall is already well above normal 5.3 inches having fallen in a month that averages 2 inches.

Long range forecasts are not always accurate. Last year forecasters called for an above average winter temperature-wise. While December was above normal in temperature, January and February were not. For the winter temperatures were .6 degrees below normal.
