You’ll Be Pleased To Hear That Tennessee’s Upcoming Winter Is Supposed To Be Warmer And Wetter Than Last Year’s
Wintertime in Tennessee tends to be a subject of popular interest, especially when autumn starts to bleed into the chilly beginnings of the darker months. Should we be investing in snowshoes or umbrellas? Will there be a polar vortex like in 2015, or will flowers bloom straight through the season? The south likes to throw a wrench in common seasonal tropes, and this year is no different. The results are in, and our winter may look a bit less white in 2018…
If you're a bigger fan of snowy winters and hours spent crunching through white drifts making snowmen, then 2019 just isn't your year. It's time to break out those umbrellas, friends!
The Farmer's Almanac just released their 2019 winter predictions, and with a 80% accuracy rate it's the best we have to go off of without experiencing the season for ourselves.
This winter, we'll be looking at a warmer, wetter season, one that will boast a whole lot of rain and greenery come the springtime.
The Old Farmer's Almanac has long been a go-to for weather and seasonal predictions, and this year is no different. A mix of meteorology, climatology and solar science is used upon publication.
We're a little bummed about the lack of snow, but at least we won't have to worry about the kids being out of school or our cars freezing up overnight. A mild winter is just what we need to gear up for the fun of next summer, after all.
The almanac has also predicted that next summer will be much milder than the debilitating heat of this year, which is a nice thing to look forward to after the rains of the dark season.
It should also make travel a lot easier, with roads open for drivers and airports experiencing less weather-related delays around the holidays and new year.
How do you feel about the weather predictions? Do you think the Old Farmer's Almanac is going to be right this year, or are you banking on the 20% chance it'll swing and miss?
Leave your thoughts in the comments below! We're excited to hear your thoughts and perhaps even your own ideas about the upcoming chilly season.
