We don’t normally pay much attention to the Farmer’s Almanac’s annual winter outlook, if only because skiers rarely want to hear it’s going to be “milder than normal” in their region of the country months before the season even starts.
But when the news is more promising, we quickly morph into almanac advocates.
The Farmer’s Almanac released its extended winter weather forecast earlier this month and “suggests a stormy winter on schedule, especially for the eastern half of the country. For some areas this may mean snow, but for others it will result in more slush and mush.”
That means “significant shivers and slushy, icy, snowy conditions” for the Northeast.
