New month, new year, and Happy 2014 from all of us at Big Frog 104! So what kind of month will January be, weather-wise? Let's take a look at the long-range weather predictions from my "old reliable" source.

Here's what "The Old Farmer's Almanac 2014" says about January, 2014 weather for our central New York region:

"Average temperature: 30.5 degrees (3.5 degrees above average)

Precipitation: 3 inches (0.5" above average)

Jan. 1 - 5: Snow showers, cold

Jan 6 - 11: Flurries, then rain and wet snow, mild

Jan. 12 - 16: Showers, mild

Jan. 17 - 20: Snow showers, cold

Jan. 21 - 24: Rainy, mild

Jan. 25 - 31: Snowy periods, cold"

So, according to this, it looks like it will be warmer and milder this month. But, I think that 3 inches of precipitation sounds a bit low.
