Despite the colder weather and snow over the past few days, The National Weather Service says Spring is likely to be warmer and wetter than average.
The National Climate Prediction Center has released predictions through June.
They say with the conclusion of La Nina, which has been in place over the Pacific Ocean for more than two years, warmer and wetter weather is possible in Southern Michigan over the next few months.
Meteorologists say it’s been a wetter-than-average winter for much of the country, including Michigan.
The result is an easing of drought conditions across the Tri-State area.
The wet conditions are expected to remain in place for now–
Spring officially arrives at 5:24 this afternoon.
