Eau Claire (WQOW) – With the chance for flying flakes later this week, there is a silver lining for those who aren’t quite ready for Old Man Winter.

Last year, Xcel Energy said customers turned up the heat a little higher due to some frigid winter temperatures.

Xcel’s heating season is between November and March. On average, Xcel Energy officials said last year, customers spent $626 during the winter season.

This year, that number is anticipated to drop by 12-percent to $556 for the five months season.

Of course, western Wisconsin’s heating costs are subject to Mother Nature.
