- The Farmers’ Almanac released its annual extended forecast for winter 2019-2020.
The Almanac is predicting a “freezing, frigid, and frosty” winter.
Soak up the sun while you still can, because it’s going to be a very long winter.
The Farmers’ Almanac just released its extended weather forecast and it’s predicting a “polar coaster” season this year—which is just as bad as it sounds.
“Our extended forecast is calling for yet another freezing, frigid, and frosty winter for two-thirds of the country,” Farmers’ Almanac Editor and Philom Peter Geiger said in a press release.
Last year’s annual prediction called for a long, snowy winter, and unfortunately it turned out to be correct. The Farmers’ Almanac promises the upcoming 2019-2020 season will be “another wild ride” with frigid temperatures and “hefty snowfalls” affecting a majority of the country.
People on the East Coast will endure the worst of the cold weather, as experts predict areas east of the Rockies all the way to the Appalachians will experience a particularly brutal season. With these colder-than-normal temperatures and above-normal precipitation, the Farmers’ Almanac also warns that a “wintry mix” of rain, sleet, and snow is likely along the coast. However, the western-third of the country can expect a milder winter with near-normal temperatures and precipitation.
