It’s no secret that winter 2014 in Pure Michigan was one to remember! From frozen lighthouses to frozen waterfalls and ice caves to blue ice, Michigan was transformed into a glistening winter wonderland.  As we bid farewell to the brilliant fall hues and temperatures begin to drop, there’s snow in the forecast once again.

This year, we decided to have a little fun with our upcoming snowfall and ask our fans to take a guess on how much snow will fall in Michigan cities this season. Here’s how it works…

Tell us in the comments how much snow you think will fall in each of the cities listed below by December 1, 2014. We’ve provided last year’s numbers to help you make your guesses. You can make one prediction for each city (five predictions in total). On the first day of spring, we’ll check back to see who made the most meteorologist-worthy predictions.
