Tawas City Weather & Climate

The Northeastern portion of Michigan's Lower Peninsula has a climate that is directly affected by the prevailing westerly winds which are modified according to the temperature and moisture content in the air as they pass over Lake Michigan. During the winter, cloud cover produced by this "lake effect" prevents the loss of heat; therefore the temperatures for this part of Michigan is somewhat warmer than would otherwise occur at this latitude. Likewise, winds moving over the waters of the Lakes in summer keeps it cooler. Average temperatures are generally warmer along the shoreline of Lake Huron for two reasons; the vast inland forests provide insulation during the summer and the Lake serves as a heat source in the winter along the shore. Rain is heaviest in northeastern Michigan during the growing season of April through September. Snowfall has wide variations from winter to winter.
