Winter Prediction Is Looking Pretty Brutal For New York State
If you were hoping for a mild winter this year in New York State, the chances for that are not looking good. The Old Farmer's Almanac released its predictions for winter 2022-2023. The Almanac says that there will be two winters in the United States. One part of the country will be mild, the other will experience bone-chilling cold.
Janice Stillman, editor of The Old Farmer’s Almanac says,
Depending on where you live, this will be the best of winters or memorable for all the wrong reasons. One half of the country will deal with bone-chilling cold and loads of snow, while the other half may feel like winter never really arrives.
The Old Farmer's Almanac predicts that is will be colder than normal this winter in the Northeast region of the country, including New York State.
The eastern half of the U.S. should brace for potentially record-breaking cold to define the season.
The Almanac says New Yorkers should expect freezing temperatures that will cause more snowfall. You can check out The Old Farmer's Almanac predictions here.
