The Farmers Almanac has published their 2018 – 2019 winter weather forecast / prediction / outlook. The Farmers Almanac’s prediction comes on the heels of the Old Farmers Almanac’s Forecast and the NOAA Official Winter Weather Outlook.
The almanac is generally calling for a cold and snowy winter for the United States. Skiers and snowboarders in the northeast will be happy to see that the Farmers Almanac is calling for a cold and snowy winter for the region. The Northern Rockies could also be in for a snow filled winter with “Teeth-chattering cold” and plentiful snow.
The Farmers’ Almanac, which bases its amazingly-accurate long-range forecast on a mathematical and astronomical formula developed in 1818, is also predicting above-normal precipitation (lots of snow!) for the Great Lakes states, Midwest, and central and northern New England, with the majority of it falling in January and February.
