    Weather people can't even predict rain for ONE DAY right let alone what the winter will bring.... Wouldn't mind getting my wall hanger from erie ice but if it was like last year I wont mind either. First ice, last ice, first ice, last ice..... Was good fishing actaully if your an ice fisherman. I really don't like drilling threw 2+' of ice

    For what I know the NOAA updates these forecasts every 3 months,
    so we will see what they say about the 3rd. week of October!

    If the first day of autumn is any kind of indicator, I think we're going in the wrong direction. :eek:

    I want a good winter so the bay sets up nice. With that, the negativity is what is does to deer in the UP and Sask. We lose a large numbers when we have these hard winters. I want just enough cold temps with little snow.

    I'm ready, all I have to do is spool up and hit the ice.

    "NOAA released the 2017-2018 winter outlook today. The official forecast puts Michigan in the heart of an active storm track this winter.

    An active storm track through Michigan and the Great Lakes usually adds up to above average snowfall. Of course it is possible some of the active storms could pull warm air north with the storm, and bring some winter rain."

    buried in that article is also this less than helpful gem:

    "In NOAA's winter forecast, Michigan lies in a region where temperatures are not pointing in a certain direction. NOAA actually gives Michigan an equal chance of having normal, colder than normal or warmer than normal temperatures."
