Old Farmer’s Almanac Winter Weather Forecast Prediction 2017 -2018
The Old Farmer’s Almanac just released its comprehensive winter weather outlook for the 2017/2018 ski season and the entire western USA is highly favored for cold temps and above average snowfall.
The folks at Old Farmer’s Almanac believe that the west coast will continue to distance itself from the drought conditions that defined the first 5 years of this decade. Moving inland, the rockies (*both northern and southern) will see ample snowfall accompanied by cold temps. The east coast will do well according to their forecast with “mild, snowy” conditions taking over for much of the season.
“This winter is forecast to be much colder than last year’s, but—just like last winter—not colder than usual… Precipitation will be at above-normal levels throughout the country, which will translate to equally above-normal amounts of snowfall in parts of the Northeast, central Great Lakes, central Plains, Intermountain region, and from eastern Tennessee through New Mexico. Get your shovels ready! “ – Old Farmer’s Almanac
Further north in Canada, the forecast turns bleak. “Mild, dry” conditions can be expected with the exception of Quebec. Quebec could see massive snowfall totals giving east coasters a reason to cross the border.
- Big snowfall, cold temps for the ‘Intermountain’ region of the western USA
- British Colombia gets the shaft
- Sierra back in 2016/2017 form.
- East coast has a decent season (*look for Jay Peak to do well… again.)
