uhh. the forecast that i read from Farmers Almanac was right on... although its always a general forecast ,covering a large area... i've ALWAYS gotten a close forecast most every year... sometimes the interpretation is in the eye of the beholder... GREAT JOB , YALL !!! from S.E. AR.


See everyone saying this past week was the worst they have seen! In 96 or 97 Louisiana was hit a lot harder with ice/snow storm! Much worse than the past week!


This is pretty much spot on for Tennessee. I guess it depends where you are in the Deep South.


I agree with the other comments!! Yeah, y’all missed the mark on this one!! I am in Baton Rouge Louisiana and we had freezing temperatures, snow and outages for days!! This was the coldest February I’ve experienced in 55 years!


Farmer's Almanac used to be close to the mark. I have farmer friends and they could pretty much always count on the Farmer's Almanac. I don't know how they are getting their info. now?????

Not Magicians

After reading all the snarky comments of people who are disappointed with the incorrect forecast the past week, I must admit they aren't magicians. Predicting a polar vortex split that far ahead is more difficult than my fellow Americans know.


Y’all completely got this wrong. This has been the coldest February’s in decades. Won’t be taking your forecast serious in the future.


I know this isnt an exact science but damn yall are way off bud. Im in Shreveport, Louisiana and its 25 degrees and we jist had 5 inches of snow and sleet. Back to thw drawing board i suppose


Obviously your forecast is missing the mark substantially..... sorry
