What will the winter be like?

Posted:

Before too long Old man winter will take hold of Michiana bringing in cold weather and of course snow.

Olga Mersich says, "Actually I hate winter."

Stan Bickel says,  "No, I'm never ready for winter I am a summer fisherman."

It's hard to say what kind of winter we will have considering it's still summer and predictions are mixed.

Some people prefer the Farmer's Almanac which is calling for a long, cold and snowy winter.

Tim Ryan with the Mishawaka Street Department says, "The Farmer's Almanac for the most part is pretty accurate."

It's even partially used by the street department which think we might be in for a bad one...

Ryan says, "We're due, We're really due. Past trends and everything. We've been due for one for a while."

Local resident Pamm Avery says, "I think things go in cycles with it and I think the Farmer's Almanac is probably reliable so I would probably choose that."

Other's would rather look to Mother Nature for clues like looking to the river.

Stan Bickel uses advice he got from his grandfather. He says,"Once the water and rainfall comes it's a steady pattern. I think we're going to get a lot of rainfall. If we do, we'll have a calm winter."

Some just prefer to get their weather from John, Steve and Ken.

Richard Hall says, "I think the daily forecast is a lot closer watching it as it develops. I don't really think you can predict something like that."

Only time will tell, but everyone does have a preference.

Avery says, "If we're going to have winter, let's do it right."

Ryan says, "About 75 degrees."

Mersich says, "I'd rather it be spring all year long."

The farmer's almanac claims it gets the forecast right 85 percent of the time, and it did call for a lot of snow for the Midwest last winter.

The National Weather Service has also issued it's predictions for the winter. Right now, they're calling for a warmer and dry winter.
