Michigan Climate & Weather

Michigan Climate and Weather

The Great Lakes influence the climate in Michigan by generally warming the winters and cooling the summers, creating more moderate temperatures in relation to other areas. The lakes also create more humidity and moisture throughout the year. Snowfall is heavy in winter and Lake Erie is often iced over. The north generally experiences cooler weather compared to the south, but the climate in Michigan is unpredictable and changes rapidly, particularly during the spring and autumn months.
