The Farmer’s Almanac predicts that the 2020 to 2021 winter season will be divided between different US regions. According to the predictions, the Mid-Atlantic region and Pennsylvania will have seasonal cold temperatures, snow, and precipitation. A February blizzard is expected.

 

The almanac has also invoked a “wild winter” for certain parts of the US. The northeast US, made up of New England and parts of New York, can expect to have an intense barrage of wintry weather systems. The same is true of areas in the Ohio River valley and some parts of Tennessee. The almanac predicts that rain, snow, and ice will continue to fall during the entire winter season.

 

In the Western United States, which doesn’t tend to have snowfall, the almanac predicts an ongoing drought. The Midwest region is predicted to have a variety of winter weather throughout the season. Because of how varied the weather around the different regions is, the almanac calls the winter a “great divide.”

 

The Farmer’s Almanac has followed the same formula for 204 years. It indicates that in the Rockies, Midwest, and Great Lakes, people might experience colder-than-usual temperatures. Some portions of western North and South Dakota might get more snow than usual.

 

In the southeast of the US, which doesn’t tend to experience significant snowfall, the almanac predicts average rainfall and slightly colder temperatures. In the desert climates in the southwest of the country, the winter will be dry and mild.

 

In the northwestern part of the country, in areas of the Pacific Northwest, including Washington, Oregon, and some of northern California, the winter is expected to be wet and rainy for the entire season.

 

The Farmer’s Almanac has been published for more than two hundred years. According to the publishers, the almanac’s purpose is to warn people about the potential upcoming future. Though the almanac isn’t used as widely as it was two centuries ago, it still comes with important information for rural community members.

 

The almanac comes with over two hundred years of farming advice about saving money, raising chickens, growing your food, going fishing, and planting gardens. You can also learn health tips and ways of boosting your immune system. These tips help readers be more independent.
