With this weekend comes the unofficial end of Summer which also means that Winter is on the way. Sure, we have to get through Fall but let's be real here, the next edition of extreme weather is Winter.
This is where it gets fun. The Farmer's Almanac is saying that this Winter is going to be pretty bad, and long. We're supposed to see colder temps and above average amount of snow. Then to add to the bad news, it also says that the cold weather could last all the way until March.
On the other hand The Old Farmer's Almanac is saying pretty much the opposite of that. They're saying that "due to a decrease in solar activity and the expected arrival of a weak El Niño" Winter is going to be warmer than normal. We're also going to see more precipitation than normal BUT it should be rain since it's going to be warm. So more rain and less snow and ice.
This is pretty much just like any other weather forecast I've ever seen or heard. It might be this or it might be that. You know when we'll find out? When Winter gets here and we're either freezing and shoveling or dealing with rain.
