You May Not Like These Predictions About Rhode Island’s Positively Frigid Upcoming Winter
With more and more Halloween decorations popping up in our favorite stores and the clearance racks filling up with summer attire, we’ve begun to say goodbye to the warm weather. Accepting our frosty fate, we’ve anxiously been waiting to hear what the Old Farmer’s Almanac has to say about our upcoming winter:
Helping Americans everywhere prepare and plan for what's to come, the Old Farmer's Almanac has been delivering us long-range predictions for 225 years.
Included in the Atlantic Corridor region, we're due to have an overall much colder winter than last year.
Precipitation is predicted to be just above normal in the North, with below normal levels in the South. So while you're outside shoveling this year, be sure to be mindful of ice!
Unlike most regions in the upper right corner of the United States, we won't be experiencing
as many snowy periods.
We may not know all of the secrets that are hiding up the Old Farmer's Almanac's sleeve, but we do know that the Atlantic Corridor will have its most snowy periods during mid to late January and early to mid February.
Two months of cold, snowy pain. Will you be able to survive the chill that this winter is going to bring?
If you're part of the percentage of residents who enjoy being outside in these brisk conditions, you'll be glad to hear that we're going to have
a lot of cold weather.
Pictured above, you can see what happens when the cold weather gets the best of our Rhode Island residents. A statue transformed into a winter wonder creature, the giant snowman will be able to make it through our coldest months! U.S. Climate Date reports that our state's coldest month is January, with an average low of 21 degrees Fahrenheit.
Anyone else already feeling freezing? We're not ready for this!
In case you were thinking that this upcoming season would be quick and painless, you thought wrong. The coldest periods of weather Rhode Island is due to see will happen in late December, all of January and early to mid February. Translation: you'll be living in your flannel pajamas for roughly three months straight. Stay warm!
