Farmers’ Almanac and Others Released Its Winter Weather Predictions
While it is almost Fall, that does not stop us from preparing for Winter as well. With everything that has happened this year, we want to see if the Winter season will be just as bad. Farmers’ Almanac along with two others already came out with their winter weather predictions and they are interesting, to say the least!
Farmers’ Almanac Winter Weather Prediction
Farmers’ Almanac has predicted that we will have a cold, snowy winter ahead of us, especially for those in the northern half of the U.S. just east of the Rockies.
Those in the southern half of the U.S. should have a more chilly wet season for the Winter. Just west of the Rockies, in the Pacific Northwest regions, there should be a milder and dry Winter. California and other Southwest states will have a wet season as well.
Farmers’ Almanac has been in publication for over 200 years and claims to be around 85% correct!
Old Farmers’ Almanac Winter Prediction
Another publication seems to think we will have a milder winter that is mainly just soggy.
Those states and areas with snow include the Northeast, Michigan’s Upper Peninsula, and up and down the Rockies.
The rest of the U.S. will mainly just have a wet winter but it shouldn’t be too cold or terrible.
The Old Farmers’ Almanac was first published in 1792, so it has been around for a long time. They claim to be 80% correct.
The Climate Prediction Center
The Climate Prediction Center typically will issue their prediction in late September once summer has officially ended. They are constantly updating their prediction and forecast so that it will be accurate.
Currently, their outlook seems to agree with the Old Farmers’ Almanac stating that it should be a milder and wetter season. The Southern half of the country should have warmer or average temperatures.
The rest of the country should have normal Winter weather it seems like, but nothing extreme. As for snow goes, the Northern half should experience more snow than normal while the Southern half should have very little snow. Those in-between will experience a mix of both.
All three of these winter weather predictions are all different, so who knows what Winter 2020 will look like exactly. Will it be like the Farmers’ Almanac states and have a rough Winter, or milder like the other two state? Either way, be sure to take it one day at a time!
