The Farmers’ Almanac released their 2019/20 winter outlook today.

This outlook is looking pretty great for ski & snowboard country, USA.

The 2020 Farmers’ Almanac is regionally forecasting:

  • Pacific Northwest:  Chilly, Normal Precipitation
  • Pacific Southwest:  Cool, Normal Precipitation
  • Northern Rockies:  Frigid & Snowy
  • Southern Rockies:  Chilled, Average Precipitation
  • Northeast:  Cold Wintery Mix

The 2019/20 Farmers’ Almanac is also calling for:

  • The worst of the bitterly cold winter conditions will affect areas east of the Rockies all the way to the Appalachians.
  • The Pacific Northwest and Southwest should see near-normal precipitation.
  • With colder-than-normal temperatures in the Northeast and above-normal precipitation expected, our outlook forewarns of not only a good amount of snow, but also a wintry mix of rain, sleet—especially along the coast.
  • Above-normal winter precipitation over the eastern third of the country as well as the Great Plains, Midwest, and the Great Lakes.
  • Spring will be slow to start with winter lingering across the Midwest, Great Lakes, Northeast, and New England. Occasional wet snow and unseasonably chilly conditions will hang on for a ride that you may not be able to get off until April!
Hopefully lots and lots of this in 2019/20 in the USA!  skier:  Miles Clark. image: Andrew Chad Photography

FARMERS’ ALMANAC WINTER OUTLOOK AT A GLANCE:

by the 2020 Farmers’ Almanac

  • BUCKLE…ER BUNDLE UP!

    The biggest drop—with the most freefalling, frigid temperatures—is forecasted to take hold from the northern Plains into the Great Lakes. The Northeast, including the densely populated corridor running from Washington to Boston, will experience colder-than-normal temperatures for much of the upcoming winter. Only the western third of the country will see near-normal winter temperatures, which means fewer shivers for them.

    COLDEST DIP IN TEMPERATURES

    According to the Farmers’ Almanac’s winter prediction, the coldest outbreak of the season should arrive during the final week of January and last through the beginning of February.

    SNOWY RIDE AHEAD

    The Almanac calls for above-normal winter precipitation over the eastern third of the country as well as the Great Plains, Midwest, and the Great Lakes. The Pacific Northwest and Southwest should see near-normal precipitation. With colder-than-normal temperatures in the Northeast and above-normal precipitation expected, our outlook forewarns of not only a good amount of snow, but also a wintry mix of rain, sleet—especially along the coast.

    WILDEST RIDES

    The 2020 edition of the Farmers’ Almanac suggests a suspenseful start to January over the eastern half of the country. This may mean frequent freefalling precipitation as well as strong and gusty winds. January 4–7 and 12–15 could, depending on where you live, mean copious amounts of snow, rain, sleet, and ice.

    And for those who live northeast of the Texas Panhandle to the western Great Lakes, watch out for what could prove to be a memorable storm producing hefty snows for the Great Plains during the third week of January. This system will cause temperatures to plummet and drag the coldest Arctic air across the rest of the country into the beginning of February. (Learn how the Farmers’ Almanac make its predictions.)

    EARLY OR LATE SPRING?

    According to our long-range outlook, spring will be slow to start with winter lingering across the Midwest, Great Lakes, Northeast, and New England. Occasional wet snow and unseasonably chilly conditions will hang on for a ride that you may not be able to get off until April!

Lets do lots and lots of this in 2019/20 in the USA. image: snowbrains
