The 2022 Old Farmer’s Almanac released its winter forecast for the upcoming season, and it comes with a warning that will have you reaching for the hot cocoa and mittens:
“Prepare for a Season of Shivers.”
This winter will be punctuated by positively bone-chilling, below-average temperatures across most of the United States, according to the Almanac forecast.
“This coming winter could well be one of the longest and coldest that we’ve seen in years,” says Janice Stillman, editor of The Old Farmer’s Almanac.
In some places, the super cold of the coming winter will also bring lots of snow.
The forecast goes on to say that above-average snowfall is also in the forecast along a track from eastern Montana southward through the western halves of the Dakotas and into northeastern Colorado.
While temperatures in this midcountry strip will be relatively normal, snowfall will be abundant, with several storms predicted throughout the winter.
For Wyoming, the Alamnac states that the eastern side of the state will see mild temperatures with snowy conditions expected throughout the season whereas the western portion is said to expect “Cold and Dry” weather.
For 230 years, the Almanac has been helping readers to prepare for winter’s worst with its 80 percent–accurate weather forecasts.
