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. While we continue to feature destinations that make our state wonderful, please take proper precautions or add them to your bucket list to see at a later date. If you know of a local business that could use some extra support during these times, please nominate them here:
