For the last 193 years, the Farmerís Almanac has been forecasting the weather with amazing accuracy.
Last year's predictions of heavy snow in February were all too accurate.
If you live in the Midwest or the East Coast, you might still be shivering from the frigid temperatures and deep snows of last winter.
So what does the Farmerís Almanac predict for the upcoming winter season?
Folks living on the east Coast can expect above average temperatures and heavy precipitation. Snow storms shouldnít be as harsh as a year ago, but expect more rain to accompany the snow.
Midwesternerís can expect above average snowfall coupled with warmer-than-usual temperatures. Of all the regions in the U.S., the Farmerís Almanac predicts the worst winter weather conditions for the Northern Plains, Northern Rockies and Western Great Lakes.
Yes, itís all just a prediction at this point, but history tells us that the Farmerís Almanac is pretty accurate when it comes to this sort of thing.
And, letís face it. If you live in the northern half of the country, snow is inevitable. Itís just a case of how many snowstorms there will be, and how much snow will fall from each storm.
For those living in Canada, the Farmer's Almanac provides predictions as well. Snowfalls are expected to be heavy for the most part and temperatures anticipated to be above average to frigid across the Great White North.
