The Old Farmer’s Almanac Predictions for Winter 2020

The trusted forecasters just released their official predictions and honestly, we’re thrilled.

The Almanac predicts “a light winter for most of us here in the United States, with warmer-than-normal temperatures in the forecast for a large part of the country.”

Take a look at this chart predicting this year’s winter:

Additionally, the experts pointed out that the coldest temperatures will occur largely just in the “western states and northeastern New England,” with mostly “wet” precipitation rather than snow across the majority of the country.

“On the precipitation side of things, expect ‘wet’ to be a wintertime constant, with rain or average to below-average snowfall to be the standard throughout most of the country.”

However, a few areas of the U.S. will in fact experience some heavier-than-usual snow: “Snowfall will be greater than normal in the Northeast, Wisconsin, Upper Michigan, the High Plains, and northern Alaska and below normal in most other areas that receive snow.”

In case you forgot, The Old Farmer’s Almanac, which was founded in 1792, has been releasing weather predictions since George Washington was president. Each year, the authors of the Almanac go back to see just how accurate their predictions were for the previous year. When it comes to the 2019-2020 winter season, they found that they were 80.5% accurate, which is just above their typical 80%.

All this is to say, even in the middle of a pandemic, we might actually have something to look forward to this winter!
