(WXYZ) - Just when you may be losing hope, here's some encouraging news for warm weather enthusiasts.
The Climate Prediction Center has posted their three month temperature outlook and it reveals a 40% chance for warmer than average temperatures.
This outlook includes the months of April, May and June.
This forecast is supported by several forecast models and largely consistent with long term trends. Also, keep in mind, there is an indication we may see above average precipitation, as well.
Now, back to reality.
We will be stuck in a colder than average weather pattern through next week with temperatures holding in the 30s and 40s, but there are warmer days and months ahead (eventually).
