Will Michigan get more or less snow than normal during Winter 2022-2023?

The NWS forecast for precipitation shows that you might need to make sure those shovels and snowblowers are ready to go as all of the lower peninsula has a higher chance of precipitation than normal. The U.P. outlook calls for equal chances of more or less precipitation.

But the one big variable it looks like we'll be dealing with is our temperatures, depending on how that goes, we could go from a beautiful winter wonderland to a slushy Michigan mess.
