According to the 2020 Farmers’ Almanac, this winter will be filled with so many ups and downs on the thermometer, it may remind you of a “Polar Coaster.” The almanac Editor Peter Geiger explains, “Our extended forecast is calling for yet another freezing, frigid, and frosty winter for two-thirds of the country.”
The worst of the bitterly cold winter conditions will affect areas east of the Rockies all the way to the Appalachians. The Northeast, including the densely populated corridor running from Washington to Boston, will experience colder-than-normal temperatures for much of the upcoming winter.
With colder-than-normal temperatures in the Northeast and above-normal precipitation expected, the weather outlook forewarns of not only a good amount of snow, but also a wintry mix of rain, sleet—especially along the coast.
How long will it last? The forecast says spring will be slow to start with wet snow and unseasonably chilly conditions lingering across the Midwest, Great Lakes, Northeast, and New England through April.
