The Farmers Almanac Predicts Winter 2020 In Virginia Will Have Frosty Temps And Above Average Amounts Of Snow
The Farmers’ Almanac releases a prediction each year about the upcoming winter. These predictions are based on factors such as tidal action, planetary positions, sunspots and more, and help us plan for the season ahead. The Almanac claims a near 80 percent accuracy rate, which is why it has been historically relied on for both farmers and other citizens in the Old Dominion. This upcoming winter is bound to be memorable, considering it’s already been deemed as a “Polar Coaster.” In other words, temperatures will be up and down so often that it’ll feel like a wintery ride. Here in Virginia, we can expect rain, snow, and sleet — in any given order.
We’re aware that these uncertain times are limiting many aspects of life as we all practice social and physical distancing. While we’re continuing to feature destinations that make our state wonderful, we don’t expect or encourage you to go check them out immediately. We believe that supporting local attractions is important now more than ever and we hope our articles inspire your future adventures! And on that note, please nominate your favorite local business that could use some love right now: https://www.onlyinyourstate.com/nominate/
