We’re digging the look of the Old Farmer’s Almanac’s 2017/18 Winter Forecast.
They’re basically saying it’ll be snowy all over the Western USA and the Northeast.
They’re saying that the Pacific Northwest will be dry and everywhere else in the west will be wet and snowy.
Old Farmer’s Almanac 2017/18 Winter Forecast for the USA:
Colder—But Not Colder Than Usual
This winter is forecast to be much colder than last year’s, but—just like last winter—not colder than usual. In fact, a large part of the northern United States will experience milder-than-average temperatures (though we would still recommend having your long underwear on-hand), while much of the South and West can expect to feel cooler than normal. Escaping this chill are Florida and the Southeast, where milder-than-usual temperatures will be felt.
A Wet and Snowy Winter All-Around
Precipitation will be at above-normal levels throughout the country, which will translate to equally above-normal amounts of snowfall in parts of the Northeast, central Great Lakes, central Plains, Intermountain region, and from eastern Tennessee through New Mexico. Get your shovels ready! Notable exceptions to this wet winter are the Pacific Northwest and Upper Midwest, where less precipitation than usual is expected.
