Farmers' Almanac is predicting a "frozen, snowy, polar coaster" for Michigan this winter.

Buckle up for the ride!

Farmers' Almanac just released their annual long-term winter forecast. They say our winter will be a combination of everything warm-weather lovers hate: a late spring, high winds, cold temperatures and lots of snow.

Expect big fluctuations in temperature, highlighted by extreme lows. They are calling it a "polar coaster."

More predictions from Farmers' Almanac:

  • January 4 - 7 and 12 - 15 will bring the most snow, rain, sleet, and ice.
  • The coldest stretch of winter will start during the final week of January and last through the beginning of February.
  • We will have a late spring as wet snow and unseasonably chilly conditions last until April.

Most regions of the country are expected to see a hard winter with the northern plains getting the worst of it. Michigan and the Great Lakes states aren't far behind.

Farmers' Almanac has been published since 1818.
