An official with Environment Canada says Huron County is in for a milder than normal winter.
Senior Climatologist David Phillips tells Country 104.9 News temperatures will fluctuate from mild to frigid throughout the cold season, but average temperatures will be above normal.
As for precipitation for the upcoming winter, you can expect lots -- but not necessarily snow.
With up-and-down temperatures expected, Phillips says precipitation will fall as both rain and snow along Ontario's West Coast.
Milder temperatures also mean a slower freezing of the surface of Lake Huron.
With more liquid water on the lake, Phillips tells us Ontario's West Coast will see more snow and rain than colder years, when ice dominates Lake Huron.
