Farmers’ Almanac winter weather forecast calls for lots of snow


New Yorkers are still enjoying summer, but in the Hudson Valley, snow is never too far from mind.

And we can expect a lot this winter, according to the Farmers’ Almanac, which recently released its 2022-2023 extended weather forecast.

The almanac, which publishes long-range annual weather forecasts, said ‘this winter season will have lots of snow, rain and mush – along with record cold temperatures! We warn readers to prepare for ‘Shake , shiver and shovel!'”

“The winter of 2022-2023 is expected to be dominated by an active storm track across the eastern half of the country, stretching from the western Gulf of Mexico to the northeast, through the Virginias and across the interior of the New York State and New England,” the almanac added. .

Winter is expected to set in earlier than last year, according to the almanac, with December looking stormy and cold and January very cold. The almanac predicts a particularly difficult week from January 16 to 23, with “periods of heavy rain and snow in the eastern two-thirds of the country” and “followed by what could be one of the most arctic air epidemics. coldest we have seen in many years.”

The Farmers' Almanac predicts a cold winter in the northeast.

“But February will bring milder temperatures which should make winter more bearable,” the almanac said.

We can then “expect a lion-like end to March. There should be a wide variety of weather conditions, ranging from heavy snowfall to torrents of rain to gusty thunderstorms in a much of the country”.

More winter weather forecasts will be revealed later this month when Farmers’ Almanac rival Old Farmer’s Almanac releases its 2022-2023 forecast.
