‘Farmers’ Almanac’ Predicts Another Frigid Winter
Well, it's 2 for 2...looks like it's going to be a frigid winter. Over the weekend we found out the Old Farmer's Almanac was predicting a 'super cold' winter. Now, the Farmers' Almanac has us looking forward to a bitter cold winter.
The 198-year-old publication last year correctly predicted a nasty winter. They were spot on with the polar vortex and relentless snowstorms and the editors of the publication are predicting more of the same for the coming season. Managing editor Sandi Duncan says, "shivery and shovelry are back. We're calling for some frigid conditions, bitter conditions."
The latest edition, which officially goes on sale this week, forecasts colder-than-normal and wetter-than-usual weather for three-quarters of the country east of the Rocky Mountains. Drought-stricken California, along with the Pacific Northwest, will see normal precipitation and cool temperatures this winter
Editor of the Lewiston publication, Peter Geiger, who joins us on the Moose Morning Show every Halloween, says they use a secret formula based on sunspots, planetary positions and lunar cycles for its long-range weather forecasts.
