General Winter Weather Summary
Winter may be off to a slow start in much of North America, but the 2016 Almanac says stay tuned: A super cold winter is on tap—with below-average winter temperatures. Bundle up!
- Freezing tempeatures will be especially pronounced along most of the Atlantic seaboard and in the Ohio Valley, Great Lakes, Pacific Northwest, and southwestern states.
- The Northeast, Ohio Valley, northern Plains, and Pacific Northwest should brace for a slew of snow.
- “Super cold is coming,” says our Almanac editor Janice Stillman, but also the good news is that areas with record-shattering snow last winter—like Boston—won’t have to deal with quite so many flakes.”
The 2016 Old Farmer’s AlmanacCanadian Edition predicts that many areas of the Commonwealth will feel much like the inside of an icebox—super cold and dry—with below-normal temperatures and snowfall.
The exception to this trend will be the Atlantic Maritimes, which will start out cold and snowy, then turn mild.
We’re not expecting more snow than usual, but the temperatures outside will definitely be brisk throughout the season.
All in all, this coming winter will be a good one for snuggling up next to the fire with a good book!”
