The Farmers’ Almanac is now in its 200th year, and is known for long-term weather forecasts generated by a mathematical and astronomical formula first used in 1818 by founder David Young. This long-standing formula uses sunspot activity, planet positioning, tidal action and a variety of other factors to work. The exact formula is carefully protected by the Farmers’ Almanac organization – known only by their weather prognosticator who goes by the pseudonym of “Caleb Weatherbee”.
Northeastern fans of snow and winter will be happy. For the 2017-18 winter, the new Farmers’ Almanac predicts a snowier-than-normal winter for Maryland, Pennsylvania, Delaware, New Jersey, New York and all of New England. This includes five significant east coast storms, which are forecasted to arrive January 20-23, February 4-7 & 16-19, and March 1-3 & 20-23.
