Farmers’ Almanac Prediction for Winter 2024 Contradicts Others
Here in the North Central U.S., the Farmers' Almanac says we should expect typically cold temperatures with average snowfall. However, many climatologists are suggesting that the midwest will be warmer and dryer than normal because of a strong El Nino event.
The publication is predicting winter to get off to an early start and last well into spring. While winter officially starts on December 21st, the Farmers' Almanac is predicting that December will start out quite stormy with the extended forecast calling for some blizzard conditions with blowing snow.
Coupled with El Nino conditions, the formula from the Farmers' Almanac is predicting colder than average temperatures with lots of snowstorms, sleet, ice, and even rain for much of the Midwest and Great Lakes area of the country.
Winter won't want to let go with predictions of blizzards the first week of March and storms across the nation leading March to go out like a lion.
