Each year the Farmers’ Almanac offers its long-range outlook for the weather ahead. Each year, especially in the winter, rumors seem to start about the Farmers’ Almanac predicting a huge blizzard or a 30-inch storm.
This year we did call for a major snow event – “blizzard” – in mid-Febuary. Well if you have been tuned into the rumor mill or the news, you may have heard that there is in fact a “big” storm brewing for the Mid-Atlantic and Northeast this weekend.
If you check the 2010 Farmers’ Almanac ( page 99 and again on page 113) Caleb Weatherbee did forewarn of a possible blizzard from Feb. 12-15. While this year’s El Nino has screwed up the schedule and storm track by just a bit, but it looks like we’re still going to come within six-days of our forecast blizzard in the Northeast part of the country. Not bad for a prediction that was made two years ago!
Time will tell. When the snow starts falling in your area, share your total inches here. And be sure to be safe and stay warm.
