I'm an amateur meteorologist, took some courses in college and know a few people in the field. I have good news for everyone. Beginning later this week for the Upper Midwest and late weekend for the Great Lakes region, our areas will be returning to normal winter weather patterns for a prolonged period. Several factors are contributing to this and I won't go into great detail what they are (if you want to know then pm me) but we will be seeing a return to a normal pattern with colder temps and outbreaks of snow. Thank god, it's looking like we will all get to finally dust off the sleds.
