The cold temperatures will return to Michigan for the Winter of 2017-18 and we could be in for some ferocious weather says the latest Farmer's Almanac.

"Be prepared for wide swings in the weather pendulum, from very warm to very cold, and periods of tranquil conditions mixed with occasional spells of tempestuous weather," is the warning issued for parts of the Western Great Lakes by the 2018 Farmer's Almanac.

Cold conditions return across the United States after a season of relatively warm readings on the thermometer. Snowier than normal conditions across the Great Lakes region ought to make snowboarders, cross-country and downhill skiiers and snowmobile fans in Michigan happy.
