Old Farmer's Almanac Mobile Apps

Planning a wedding and hoping that it doesn’t rain?

Going on a tropical vacation and praying for sun? Hoping for a snowy ski season? Wondering if your winter will be colder than normal?

Be in the know! This is the first weather app that predicts long-range weather—so that you can look into the future.

Since 1792, when George Washington was president, The Old Farmer’s Almanac has forecast the general weather with a proprietary technique that on average has proven to be 80% accurate!

Please note …

  • Our FREE long-range day-by-day weather predictions cover this and next month, and you also receive the 2016 annual summary for each region.
  • You have the option of purchasing a one-year subscription to see the complete long-range day-by-day forecasts for all months in the current edition of The Old Farmer’s Almanac. New editions are released each September and contain long-range forecasts from November until October of the following year.
  • For example, if you purchase a subscription in July 2016, you will immediately have access to the long-range forecasts covering November 2015 to October 2016. When the next edition of The Old Farmer’s Almanac is released in September 2016, under the same subscription, you’ll have access to the forecasts for November 2016 to October 2017.
  • Your subscription will automatically renew each year, and you may manage your subscription, and turn off the auto-renewal, at any time. You cannot, however, cancel your current subscription.
  • Please review our privacy policy at ​http://www.almanac.com/content/privacy-policy
  • Individual long-range forecasts are available for 18 multistate regions of the United States and 7 regions of Canada —the most coverage available for more accurate forecasting.
  • Regional forecasts include seasonal summaries; monthly temperature and precipitation vs. normals, based on 30-year statistical averages; and day-by-day summaries (e.g., “Dec. 9–14 Rainy periods, warm”).

How do we do it?

The Old Farmer’s Almanac, North America’s most popular periodical and oldest almanac, uses three scientific disciplines to make its forecasts: solar science (the study of the activity on the Sun), climatology (the study of prevailing weather conditions over long periods of time, and meteorology (the study of the atmosphere).

Once (a Year) Is Not Enough! For 221 years, as surely as the Sun rises in the east, maple leaves turn color in autumn, and drinking a glass of water while lying across a chair on your stomach cures hiccups, The Old Farmer’s Almanac has been published in September—just as it will continue to be.

However, for fortunate users of tablets and phones, this steadfast American icon is now also available monthly in a format that fits your devices.

Each edition of Almanac Extra! contains feature articles on subjects that have defined The Old Farmer’s Almanac as a “calendar of the heavens” for centuries—topics such as astronomy, weather, gardening, nature and the outdoors, farming, food, anniversaries, and, of course, the calendar itself. After all, it’s the holidays and other significant events that make the world go ’round.

You’ll often find audio and video multimedia content within this Almanac Extra!, making it far more interactive and fun than plain printed pages.

The Full Moon Finder App from The Old Farmer’s Almanac will tell you “next” full Moon dates to help plan events, fishing and hunting trips, and more.

Each day, a large Moon image will show how much of its surface is lit—along with Moon folklore for the day and the name of each full Moon (e.g., Full Snow Moon, Full Strawberry Moon).

This easy-to-use app also includes the Moon’s age and percentage of illumination as well as a monthly calendar and the ability to swipe left or right to navigate day-by-day.
