Thought people might like to see this, the Farmer's Almanac forecast for the winter
Scientists warn against taking it too seriously, but they have been right sometimes.
Nobody can give exact predictions, but I think there are some big trends they can look at. Is it an El Nino year? The cycle of sunspots and solar activity. Studies of the atmosphere and climate, etc. They can't tell you you are going to get six inches of snow on a specific date three months from now. But I think it isn't unreasonable that they can have some idea of what the general trends are. That said, I did warn people not to take it over-seriously.Gary350 wrote:My father use to swear by Farmers Almanac. He would call me to warn me, this is going to be the worse winter in 100 years make sure you stock 3 month supply of food and water. Keep your vehicle gas tank full all the time and stock pile gas at home. He believed every word of the Farmers Almanac and it worried him to death. He would get mad at me for not taking it serious. I don't think anyone can forecast the weather several months in advance. Channel 2 Nashville has trouble getting weather forecast correct 2 days in advance. LOL. There may be some science that goes into making Farmer Almanac predictions that might actually be fairly accurate sometimes.
