If you’re headed outside on New Year’s Eve to ring in 2011, be sure to check out the Farmers’ Almanac’s long range predictions before picking out your outfit.
With cold, unsettled conditions forecast for much of the U.S. and Canada in the closing days of 2010, look for the skies to clear up nearly everywhere as we move closer to the New Year. Only the Midwest and Great Lakes region, is expected to see snow. In Canada, we expect a storm system to pound parts of Manitoba this week, and heavy winds to batter the Maritimes. Elsewhere, look for fair, but cold conditions.
