Farmer's Almanac Predicts an Extra-Long, Extra-Cold Winter with 'Bone-Chilling' Temperatures
According to the peasant almanac, a wild winter is ahead of us.
The Old Farmer's Almanac 2022 has issued its official warning for particularly wintry weather. In the coming months, the trusted resource predicts a "Season of Shivers" "punctuated by positively shuddering, sub-par temperatures in most of the United States".
The Almanac, which has an 80 percent accurate forecast, says the US can expect a lot of snow this season, with an "extreme wintry mix" towards New England, Ohio Valley, and even parts of the deep south and southeast of New Mexico .

And while temperatures in states like Montana, Dakotas and Colorado are expected to remain "relatively normal", regions should prepare for "above-average snowfall" with "multiple storms being forecast throughout the winter."
Janice Stillman, editor of The Old Farmer's Almanac, said the upcoming winter "could well be one of the longest and coldest we've seen in years".

According to the Almanac, the western United States will be largely spared from the terrible winter weather. The region "will remain relatively dry, with all but the Pacific coast itself and parts of the southwest facing the freezing cold predicted for the rest of the country," the source predicts.

Speaking of Canada, Stillman said, "The coming winter won't be remarkable in terms of temperature, but it will indeed be a long season for our Canadian friends who just want to end up drying out."
The Farmer's Almanac has been helping predict weather conditions since 1792 when it published its very first forecast. The almanac uses solar science, climatology, and meteorology to make its predictions.
