2018 Summer Beach Forecast

Summer is just around the corner and that means beach season! Will this year be a good one to frolic in the sand? The Farmers’ Almanac beach forecast is calling for some very hot days ahead. In fact, in many areas, we’re forecasting the Triple Hs: hazy, hot, and humid conditions (especially in the Southeast)—perfect weather to head seaside to enjoy those cooler breezes. But no matter where you live, you can count on enjoying plenty of good beach days. Like every summer, though, some days will be better than others.

If you notice a hole in the upper left-hand corner of your Farmers' Almanac, don't return it to the store! That hole isn't a defect; it's a part of history. Starting with the first edition of the Farmers' Almanac in 1818, readers used to nail holes into the corners to hang it up in their homes, barns, and outhouses (to provide both reading material and toilet paper). In 1919, the Almanac's publishers began pre-drilling holes in the corners to make it even easier for readers to keep all of that invaluable information (and paper) handy.
