Old Farmer's Almanac Winter Prediction For 2018 2019 Is Out Are You Ready
The Other Farmers' Almanac Is Predicting a Cold, Snowy Winter and We Don't Know Who to Believe
- Farmers' Almanac released its forecast for winter 2019-19.
- The Almanac is predicting a long, cold, snowy winter.
- This contradicts the Old Farmer's Almanac's forecast for a wet, warm winter.
Don't toss those snow boots just yet: Just days after The Old Farmer's Almanac forecasted a warm, wet winter, theotherFarmers' Almanac has predicted the exact opposite: A long, cold, snowy winter.
"Contrary to some stories floating around on the Internet, our time-tested, long-range formula is pointing towards a very long, cold, and snow-filled winter," Farmers' Almanac Editor and Philom Peter Geiger says in the press release. "We stand by our forecast and formula, which accurately predicted most of the winter storms last year as well as this summer's steamy, hot conditions."
In particular, the Northeast, Great Lakes, Ohio Valley, Midwest, and even Southeast can expect "teeth-chattering" temperatures due to a cold front in mid-February,according to the Almanac.
Those bummed about the OFA's forecast of more rain and less snow this season will be happy to hear that they may get a white Christmas after all: The Almanac predicts plenty of snowfall in the Great Lakes states, Midwest, and central and northern New England (they even offer month-to-month predictions).
Above-normal precipitation is also expected in the Pacific Northwest, Northeast, and Mid-Atlantic States, whether in the form of ice, rain, or freezing rain. Even the Southwest and Southeast will reportedly be wet in December 2019 and early 2019, respectively.
These cold conditions could be long-lasting too. The Almanac says spring may get a late start, especially on the East Coast, as mid-March storms are expected to bring "snow, sleet, and/or rain as well as strong and gusty winds."
It's worth noting that the National Weather Service's predictions were similar to the OFA's: above-normal temps for most of the country, particularly the Southwest, Northeast, and Northwestern Alaska.
Of course, asThe Washington Postnotes, you should take all this with a grain of salt, as weather forecasting is simply not yet advanced enough to ensure accurate predictions this far out. Still, it never hurts to be prepared for any kind of weather.
