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!
Hopefully lots and lots of this in 2019/20 in the USA!  skier:  Miles Clark. image: Andrew Chad Photography
