You May Not Like These Predictions About Vermont’s Positively Frigid Upcoming Winter
We know how to have during our cold and snow-filled months, but Vermonters everywhere are still trying to soak up as much of summer’s warmth as we possibly can. Reminding us once again that cold weather is right around the corner, the Old Farmer’s Almanac has released its preview of what’s to come for the upcoming year.
Bundle up and prepare yourselves; you may not like these predictions about Vermont’s frigid winter:
Known for their 80% accuracy, the Old Farmer's Almanac is predicting that this winter will be quite brutal for the Northeast.
With 225 years of experience, the predictions for this year's winter include slightly above normal precipitation and near normal snowfall.
This year they're warning us to be prepared for a much colder winter than last year, so begin to pull all of your warmer clothes back out of storage!
U.S. Climate Data shows that Vermont's coldest month is usually January, with an average low temperature of only
ten degrees. But hey, things could be worse! At least we're still working with double digit numbers here.
Included in the Northeast region, we're due to get a great deal of snow. You'll be back to building your favorite friend Frosty in no time.
Snow people and homemade igloos - how else are we supposed to cope with the mass amounts of snow and cold temperatures? Predicted for the season, the snowiest periods are expected to be mid November, late January, mid and late February and early to mid March.
You know what would've been slightly more kind? If they just simply stated that we're going to be covered in snow all winter long instead of reminding us just how many freezing months we have to put up with here. If only there was a way to enjoy snow and have things be not so frigid. A girl can only dream!
From late December until early March, we're due to experience some ice-cold temperatures.
While we may not have all of the details yet about what's to come this winter, we're predicted to have our coldest periods be late December, mid and late January, mid February and early March.
So, who's ready for the annual game of "Which gigantic blob of snow is my car trapped within?"
If you're lucky, you'll be able to see a recognizable piece of your car and know where to begin diggings. Others who aren't so fortunate will find themselves playing the helpful citizen as they unknowingly dig out several other cars before actually finding their own.
