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 for an entire year ahead (from each November through the following October)—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 that our long-range weather predictions cover:

  • From November 2013 through October 2014
  • Long-range forecasts for 18 multistate regions of the United States—the most coverage available for more accurate forecasting
  • Seasonal summaries; monthly temperature and precipitation versus normals, based on 30-year statistical averages; weekly 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).

Can you crack these mental nuts? The Almanac's tantalizing “Brainteaser of the Day” app serves up not just one or two kinds of puzzles, but also forgotten types such as metagrams, conundrums, rebuses, charades, enigmas, anagrams, and riddles.

Many are old-fashioned puzzlers that kept your grandparents up at night, and they're as challenging today as they were up to 200 years ago, when they appeared in The Old Farmer's Almanac. Everyone in the family from ages 8 to 80 (or more!) will find something intriguing. Have fun-every day!

From stains on the rug to squirrels in the attic, the Almanac’s “Home Helper” dispenses daily tips for everyday household problems. Wonder what Grandma would have used to clean greasy kitchen walls? Cure a sore throat? Conquer pests in the garden?

Try these practical solutions, helpful hints, and sage secrets that you won’t often find anywhere else.
