With all the cold and snow this winter I was curious about what the Farmers' Almanac had to say about it all.
It's always been interesting to read the Farmers' Almanac and see what their weather predictions are. Can they peg when the hurricanes will hit, where the tornadoes will strike, which areas will be flooded with heavy rains and whether we will see snow?
Here's what the publication has to say about the winter this year in the south: "For the coming year, the Farmers' Almanac predicts that Old Man Winter will exhibit a "split personality." The eastern third of the country, (New England down to Florida and as far west as the lower Ohio River and Mississippi River Valley), will experience colder-than-normal winter temperatures. In terms of precipitation, three storm tracks are expected to predominate during this upcoming winter season. One will be across the Gulf Coast and Southeast, delivering copious amounts of precipitation from lower Texas across the South (Texas, Louisiana, Alabama, Mississippi, Georgia) into the Mid-Atlantic region."
The predictions are interesting considering our December temperatures were well below average and we've had four to five wintry precipitation events in Eastern Carolina so far.
