Three years ago I came across this neat weather forecasting service called "Weather Decoded" from Cody Ervin, a weather forecasting geek who has incorporated data from 10 different weather forecasting models into an overall forecast for the coming winter. The information and graphics to follow is taken from Cory's First Winter Forecast for the 2019 - 20 winter (forecast date November 7).
As the graphic to the right indicates, the forecast for Wisconsin, Michigan, and Minnesota including the entire Lake Superior region is for temperatures to "Below Normal" and what Cory described as Crushing Cold Historic Arctic Outbreaks occurring.
That forecast is sort of mixed good and bad news for winter sports. We want cold and snow but too much of the former not good. But with consistent below normal temps at least shouldn't be much ice.
But one good news part of the Historic Arctic Outbreak forecast is for Lake Superior freezing over to allow over-the-ice travel to see the fantastic Bayfield Lake Superior Ice Caves.
As the adjacent graphic indicates, precipitation and expected Winter Snowfall will be above average, as much as 25%. But the eastern UP may experience greater than 50% above normal snowfall, which is huge considering they normally get in excess of 100 inches a year. So good news for skiers, snowshoe enthusiasts, and snowmobiling fans.
