The book hit shelves today, conveying that “exceptionally cold, if not downright frigid weather will predominate over parts of the Northern Plains, Great Lakes, Midwest, Ohio Valley, the Middle Atlantic, Northeast and New England.” More specifically, it notes that, “An active storm track will deliver above-normal precipitation to the Southeast, Northeast and New England states.”
You might notice that an important area is missing from that list: the West. Unfortunately, the Almanac is calling for “milder-than-normal temperatures,” in that region, although “another active storm track from the Pacific will deliver a dose of above-normal precipitation across the Western States” that would ideally come in the form of snow. For now, we’ll ignore the negative news—as all skiers do when it comes to weather—and rejoice over the fact that the most of the U.S. is slated to have a cold and pow-filled season.
Here’s to hoping the Almanac is right about the Northern Plains, Great Lakes, Midwest, Ohio Valley, the Middle Atlantic, Northeast and New England. And, additionally, here’s to hoping it’s wrong about the West’s high temps.
