A few weeks ago I posted weather forecasts for the coming winter. Several sources predicted that winter 2015 would be worse than the past winter. At that time the Farmers Almanac Forecast for 2015 had not been released. It’s out now and their prediction is for a “super cold” winter, editor Janice Stillman calls it “a refriger-nation.” More details here.
While Farmers Almanac was correct in its forecast for last winter it was very far off for the current summer. They predicted the summer of 2014 to be ” exceptionally hot across much of North America, with “oppressive” humidity throughout the eastern half of the United States”. Not even close.
