Find Out Why You Might Want To Ditch The Snowboots This Winter
For over 200 years, people in the US have relied on the Old Farmer’s Almanac for all of their extended weather information. With summer winding down and cold weather just around the corner, the thought running through everyone’s mind is, “What exactly are we in for?”
Grab Your Umbrella
While this winter is going to have plenty of precipitation it looks like it won’t be the kind that calls for a day off from school or work. Instead, the Old Farmer’s Almanac is predicting rain and lots of it! The forecast states, “We expect to see below-normal levels of snowfall in areas that normally get snow, with the interior West and a small part of the nation’s midsection being the snowier-than-normal exceptions.”
Graphs are showing that even the regions throughout the country that typically see cold, snowy winters are looking to get more rain than usual. So while the temperatures may be milder than prior years, you may want to keep your waterproof jacket and boots on hand.
Where Is All The Snow?
Once January rolls around it is common to start checking the forecast daily to see if we will get a winter wonderland. However, with predictions of mostly rain this year, it has people wondering where is all the snow.
The Farmer’s Almanac explains stating, “A decrease in solar activity and the expected arrival of a weak El Niño — both of which will prevent cold air masses from sticking around in the North.” The United States as a whole will be affected by the mild temperatures; however, still expect to see some frigid days throughout the winter season.
Weather Can Be Tricky
While the Old Farmer’s Almanac weather predictions are something that has stood the test of time, they are not always accurate. As almost anyone can attest to, the weather sometimes has a mind of its own.
So while it can be fun to read up on these seasonal predictions, don’t trade in your snowblower for a canoe quite yet.
