Our forecasts are regional. We very rarely mention any state by name, unless it is expected to see something different from the rest of the region. Check out the regional zones we cover on our long range weather forecast page.
We’ve been using the same formula for over 200 years based on math. As for the accuracy, readers claim we’re accurate about 85% of the time, which we think is pretty good. Even the best miss one on occasion! To learn more about how we predict the weather, visit our long range weather forecast page. Also check out our On The Money page for a history of our forecast accuracy.
Our forecasts cannot pinpoint the exact location of a tornado. Even the National Weather Service has difficulty doing that within a couple of hours, and our forecast is made more than two years in advance.
Unfortunately, we only provide predictions for the continental US and Canada.
You can view a glossary of the gardening terms we use on our Planting by the Moon Calendar page.
All our planting information is based on phases of the Moon so it’s good across all growing zones, and therefore is “weather permitting.”
Our website was in need of a redesign in order to help us provide a better experience for our visitors and offer more enhanced features than ever before. Sign up for our newsletter if you want to stay up to date on the latest exciting changes!
Here’s a little secret: we hate ads too! Unfortunately they represent one of our largest sources of online revenue, so we have to rely on them to be able to feed our chickens. You can help though by signing up for a membership (where you’ll rarely see ads). The more people who sign up, the more that helps us reduce our dependency on internet advertising.
You can use the print option on your browser to print out any page on the site. However it may not look quite right depending on the page. We are working to provide more printer friendly options in the future.
Unfortunately no, many of the images we use are stock photography and require a subscription. You may however share our weather maps, provided you include the appropriate link back to our site.
You may use portions of our articles in your newsletter as long as you give us the proper credit and link back to all articles.

This can be for a variety of reasons, but the most common is a result of entering the wrong zip code or CVC security code as listed on your credit card. Try signing up again and carefully enter the correct payment information.
Unfortunately we no longer offer free memberships and your account has been deleted. You will still be able to see 1 month of our calendars for free, but if you would like to gain 12 full months of access to our calendars, please consider signing up for our very affordable membership plans to help support the Farmers’ Almanac!
If you’ve signed up for our All-Access Membership, which includes a copy of the newest edition of the print edition of the Farmers’ Almanac, please note that we don’t ship print copies in June or July. The newest edition of the Almanac is released in August. If you’ve signed up any other time of the year, your print edition should be received in 5-10 business days after you’ve signed up for All-Access.
Unfortunately we do not have a large print or hardcover edition at this time.
Unfortunately we no longer offer a printed version of the Canadian Farmers’ Almanac, however, we do have Canadian weather forecasts for the entire year on our web site. To access, simply become a member.
Newsletter / Email
Check out our newsletter sign-up page for all the different newsletters we offer!
We provide an unsubscribe link at the bottom of every newsletter we send out. Look for it there to immediately unsubscribe.
Make sure it’s not showing up in your junk/spam folder, as regularly sent emails can sometimes show up there. If you use Gmail, it may sometimes appear in the categories folder for “Promotions.” If you still cannot find it and are not getting any emails, give us a shout and we’ll check into it for you!
We never send more than one email a day depending on what list you are subscribed to, and we never send spam. If you are receiving promotional advertisements by email that have no content except for ads, it is definitely not coming from us. Look for the contact info at the bottom of such emails to find out where they are coming from and how to unsubscribe.
If you see a notification from us on your Android phone or on your Google browser, you may have seen what is known as a push notification. These notifications only appear if you opted in to receive alerts from our website directly. If you wish to turn these off, carefully follow the instructions at Google Support to disable notifications. Enlist the help of a tech-minded friend or relative if needed, as the instructions can be a little technical!
There are a couple of things you can do to be sure you always see our posts in your Facebook news feed (Facebook doesn’t always deliver our posts to everyone a timely manner): Go to your Facebook settings (which can be accessed by the “down arrow” on the far top right of your desktop screen, to the right of the globe), and select “News Feed Preferences.” From there you can select “Prioritize who to see first.” You can also select the “follow” button on our Facebook page.
