Get Ready To Bundle Up, The Farmers Almanac is Predicting Below Average Temperatures This Winter In North Carolina

A few days ago, we announced that fall colors will arrive early in North Carolina this year. And we couldn’t be more thrilled! But what about winter? What’s in store for the Tar Heel State this upcoming winter? Each year at the end of August, the Farmers’ Almanac releases an extended forecast with predictions for winter weather across the continental U.S. Every year since 1818, the Farmer’s Almanac has released a winter weather outlook and is proud of its 80 percent accuracy track.

During these uncertain times, please keep safety in mind and consider adding destinations to your bucket list to visit at a later date.

How does the Farmers’ Almanac predict the weather for the upcoming winter? It employs a secret formula using things like sunspot activity, tidal action of the Moon, the position of the planets, and a variety of other factors and has one person on staff apply those factors to a set of rules developed by the Almanac’s first publisher way back in 1818. The process is so guarded, the one employee who maintains the information and produces the forecasts doesn’t even use his real name at work. He goes by the pseudonym, Caleb Weatherbee.
