It is the time of year when everybody starts looking ahead, and not necessarily with optimism. Daylight is shrinking as nights get longer, and temps are dropping. Before we know it, the pitter patter of little snowflakes will arrive. So, the question youre probably asking is: How will this winter be That question is typically not easy to answer but, this winter, a clue has arisen that is providing some meaningful guidance. Before getting to the forecast itself, you need to know what El Nino is. A lot of people dont understand what El Nio and its sister, La Nia are and how they affect our weather.As you can imagine, the surface waters of our worlds oceans do not have the same temperature -- there are differences.In the Pacific, when prevailing winds push its warmer surface waters eastward, its called an El Nio.When those winds reverse and push those warmer surface waters westward toward Asia, its called La Nia.So whats the big deal about this Because there is a tremendous interaction between our oceans and the atmosphere -- more thunderstorms form where those warmer waters are, and that impacts the jet stream configuration. And, as weve explained many times in the past, the jet stream not only separates cold air masses from warmer ones, but its also our general storm track.In an El Nio winter, two things happen: The main Arctic jet stream tends to shift farther north, which limits Arctic air intrusions into our region. The farther north storm track sometimes gives us a drier than normal winter. El Nios also strengthen the subtropical jet stream, which creates a more persistent storm track across the south, and gives them a cooler, rainier winter in general.In a La Nia winter, the Arctic jet stream trends farther south, allowing more Arctic blasts into the Great Lakes. If the storm track is near us, that means more snow storms. Farther south, the subtropical jet stream is almost non-existent, so they have a drier, sunnier, more pleasant winter. If youre a snowbird, you like La Nia winters.Heres the NOAA forecast for the upcoming winter and, based upon what I explained above, you can easily see an El Nio influence on the expected general weather pattern across the country.As you can see, the NOAA winter outlook calls for above average temperatures for us, and below average precipitation. But there are some important caveats. First, remember that these are averages for the entire winter, and we dont necessarily know how that distribution of temperature and precipitation will play out. For example, lets say we have a really cold December followed by a milder January and February.That would average out warmer for all three months, even though we had a harsh December. Or, lets say we have a dry December, get slammed with snow in January, and then have a dry February. You might think it was a harsh winter based upon selective memory we always remember the days we were stuck in snowy rush hour traffic, not the nice days when, in actuality, most of it was benign.Also, keep in mind that this forecast does not mean that we cant get a big snowstorm. We can still have some of those biggies in an otherwise drier than average winter. Its sort of like Hurricane Andrew hitting south Florida in 1992 in a relatively quiet hurricane year.Another complication is that the El Nino this winter is expected to be a weak one. These winter forecasts are pretty easy when its a strong El Nino, like in the winters of 1982-83, 1997-98 or 2016-17.But when its a weak El Nino, then other ocean and atmospheric indicators such as the Arctic Oscillation, the Antarctic Oscillation, the Pacific Decadal Oscillation, etc. become more important.
Friday nights cold front, followed by a potent upper level disturbance Saturday afternoon, brought a variety of weather to our areafrom scattered severe thunderstorms to robust sleet showers and even some snowflakes. But all of that weather has shifted east, and we have a cool, dry Sunday ahead. Unfortunately, it appears that the overnight cloud cover will be slow to break up, so we wont be able to see the Orionid Meteor Shower, which peaks this morning before dawn. We should see breaks of sun develop during the day and, by the end of the day, skies should be mostly clearwhich will carry over into Sunday night. If youre up early to run in the Free Press / Chemical Bank Marathon, plan for temperatures in the 30s 1 to 3 degrees Celsius with wind blowing from the northwest at 10 to 15 mphperhaps a little more breeze than youd like, but most marathoners weve talked to say that this is much better than the 70 degrees 21 degrees Celsius we had at the start of last years race. Highs this afternoon will only be in the mid to upper 40s 7 to 9 degrees Celsius, and even cooler in the Thumb. Temperatures tonight should drop into the mid 30s 1 to 2 degrees Celsius. It appears that well be dry for the entire week ahead, so this is probably a good time to get the car washed if its dirtyyoull get good value out of that car wash. Well be partly cloudy Monday and Tuesday, and mostly sunny Wednesday and Thursday before becoming partly cloudy again on Friday. Highs all week long should range from the upper 40s to low 50s 8 to 11 degrees Celsius, with overnight lows generally not far from freezing 32 degrees Fahrenheit / 0 degrees Celsius. Keep in mind that our average high this time of year is near 60 degrees 15 to 16 degrees Celsius and our average low is 42 degrees about 5 degrees Celsius, so itll be another week with below average temperatures. Although the upcoming weekend isnt certain yet, it looks dry right now, but with less sunshine than wed probably like.

Perry Funeral Home is the second Detroit funeral home accused of mishandling infant remains.RELATED: Lawsuit filed against Perry Funeral Home, WSU and Harper Hutzel Hospital over infant remainsMore than 60 fetuses were found in boxes and freezers at the funeral home on Detroits west side.The investigation started when 11 fetuses were found at the shuttered Cantrell Funeral Home on Detroits east side.That discovery led authorities to Perry Funeral Home, which has since been closed as investigators try to identify the remains.Families want answers.I want my moms remains, said Vanessa McMath, a client of the Perry Funeral Home.With the funeral home shuttered, McMath is unsure if she can get her mothers cremains.There is little closure for dozens of parents who lost pregnancies at the Detroit Medical Centers Harper-Hutzel Hospital.I havent gotten a death certificate, said Micah Compton. I want to see where my baby was buried at.In a deposition, Perry Funeral Home manager Gary Deak said he stored the remains in a freezer at Perry Funeral Home. The parents never had any idea this was happening.Perry Funeral Home, Harper Hutzel Hospital and Wayne State are facing a civil suit over this as a criminal investigation unfolds for how those remains were handled by this funeral home.The law firm representing the Perry Funeral Home released this statement: Perry Funeral Home has been serving the Detroit community for decades and has been a reputable, reliable and caring member of the community. The allegations being made through the press are inaccurate. Perry Funeral Home has conducted itself within the confines of the applicable statutes. These allegations involve only unclaimed infant remains. Perry Funeral Home received these remains from local hospitals who had indicated to Perry that the remains were unclaimed by the parents. In other words, the hospitals had informed Perry that the hospitals had reached out to the parents by certified mail and/or by phone, and the families did not respond. We do not believe that any of these remains involve families that paid Perry for funeral services. In the case of unclaimed remains, a funeral home cannot bury remains without proper authorization, and the law in Michigan sets forth a hierarchy for authority. Perry relied upon and operated within that hierarchy, but Perry never received the legal authority necessary to conduct a final disposition of the remains. Perry Funeral Home had not been informed that the parents of any of the deceased had desired for the remains to be donated to the medical school. Again, Perry was told that the remains were unclaimed by the parents. It is still unclear why any remains intended to be donated did not go to the medical school. Perry was not involved in any way with the body donor program, which was a program strictly between the hospitals and the medical school. Perry has conducted itself within the law and has not committed any criminal offenses.
