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!
“Our extended forecast is calling for yet another freezing, frigid, and frosty winter for two-thirds of the country,” shares Editor Peter Geiger, Philom.
