What a winter! It’s almost the end of February but for many areas the snow keeps falling and falling and falling. So the million dollar question: How much more winter is left?
Well I hate to be the bearer of bad news, but I don’t think we’re out of the woods just yet. If you look at the pages of the Farmers’ Almanac, the 2010 forecast warns of frequent stormy weather into March, with heavy rains and wet snows, for much of North America including the already saturated Northeast. In fact, the Farmers’ Almanac predicts that the coming days and weeks will see at least three-quarters of the nation enduring unseasonably cold weather, with only the far western US experiencing near or above normal temperatures. (Check out your region’s forecast here.) “Sholvery is not dead.”
The official start of spring is March 20th. But until then, I wouldn’t put away the snow shovels yet, and you might want to get a new raincoat and umbrella.
In about a week we will release our official spring and summer outlook. Stay tuned. In the mean time, share your winter pictures on our Farmers’ Almanac Facebook page.
