Ill put it this way. Many years ago I went on a september ML hunt my friends had done several times expecting good weather. just over 1/2 way through the hunt we got a foot of snow and were flat out miserable the rest of the hunt. We even packed up early and hunted lower and were still miserable. I have never gone on any hunt since without being prepared for deep snow and below 0 temps. You never know what the weather could do.
