This might be the coldest winter in modern times if the “Old Farmer’s Almanac” can be trusted. The almanac which has a centuries-long tradition, as it runs for 230 years now, has predicted a cold winter for this tough year and they are calling it “the season of shivers”.
Whether the almanac’s predictions are trustworthy or not, is still debatable, but it is sure fun to see that sometimes they get it right. According to their premonition, this will be an icy winter with unusually cold temperatures, especially in New England and in the Ohio Valley.
But the truly unusual aspect is that it predicted some harsh temperatures even for New Mexico. The almanac has been long trying to establish itself as the go-to magazine for weather forecasts, and it usually has a more esoteric approach, drawing lots of criticism.
This practice dates back to the end of the 18th century when the first “Old Farmer’s Almanac” was published and predictions had to be made based on moon cycles, rather than satellite images. Whether their predictions will become reality this year, is still yet to be seen, but if you want to learn more about the almanac’s accuracy you should search for a study conducted by Jan Null. His findings are more than interesting.
