Dr. Jeff Andresen, state climatologist for Michigan and a professor in the MSU Department of Geography, joins Kirk Heinze on Greening of the Great Lakes to catch up on recent climate patterns in Michigan as we enter the first weeks of summer.

Following what Andresen reports as the 5th warmest winter on record, Michiganders can continue to expect mean temperatures warmer than normal as we transition from El Nino to La Nina in the coming months.  He explains the transition is a global phenomenon, which is why it rightfully gets so much attention.
