Farmer’s Almanac Predicting ‘Polar Coaster’ Winter with ‘Memorable Storm’ in New York
Get the snow blowers ready. It looks like we're in store for a Winter filled with lots of snow, colder than normal temperatures and a possible 'memorable storm' in central New York.
The 2020 Farmers’ Almanac, is predicting a freezing, frigid, and frosty winter for not only central New York, but two thirds of the country. "This winter will be filled with so many ups and downs on the thermometer, it may remind you of a “Polar Coaster.”
From the sounds of it, we're going to need the snow blowers a lot. Above normal precipitation is predicted, especially around the Great Lakes. "January 4–7 and 12–15 could, depending on where you live, mean copious amounts of snow, rain, sleet, and ice."
The end of January could be even worse. "Watch out for what could prove to be a memorable storm producing hefty snows during the third week of January."
In addition to all the snow, it's also going to be cold....really, really cold. "The Northeast, will experience colder-than-normal temperatures for much of the upcoming winter."
The coldest weather of the Winter comes after the possible 'memorable storm.' "The coldest outbreak of the season should arrive during the final week of January and last through the beginning of February."
Winter will hang around awhile too. "Spring will be slow to start. Occasional wet snow and unseasonably chilly conditions will hang on for a ride that you may not be able to get off until April."
Looks like another typical Winter in central New York is on the way. Extended Florida vacation anyone?
