Totally wrong again. Just like the weather channel. It goes to show you with all the technology long range forecasts cannot be accurate. Forecasts are hard enough for predicting the weather 10 days in advance let alone 3 months or more.

Weather reporting from Farmer's Almanac is Wrong!!!

I love the snow and want the snow as reported from Farmer's Almanac that would take place here in Maryland. I am so sick and tired of the weather channel and the weathermen and women saying were going to get all of this snow and it ends up being rain. Now, Farmer's Almanac is saying were looking at a snow storm in early March first they said it was going to happen in mid February. SMH

s'no joke

Remember our accuracy rate iss 80 percent, not 100 percent. 

We are getting snow here in New England and some people are starting to think, be careful what you wish for! 

Weather report been wrong so

Weather report been wrong so far this year(2/6/21)

Winter 2020-2021

Guys chill, winter is the hardest season to predict, and where I'm at even though I've gotten 18 inches of snow. My location is still 13 inches below its average snowfall to date. Yes they may have been wrong, just note if you tried to make a forecast in October how the entire year will be like. I'm sure you wouldn't do as well as them.

cheers for your kind words!

Blizzard PLEASE

Lives in BALTIMORE wishing for a major blizzard....childhood we use to have the best snow days and great blizzards ....
Praying we get dumped on....love watching it snow.....❄️☃️⛄️❄️

Time off

Trying to get time off from work, when weather is going to bad, so I don’t have to wake up even earlier and clear snow off of car, and try and find parking.. a few days to relax at home with a good book and the animals... thinking 3/9-3/12 then I’m off weekend... would that be an ideal time


So far you're way off. January was drier than usual, and looks like February will be wet. With today, February 1, 2021 a swirling blizzard that started about 1am, expected into tomorrow. So much for sunny and mild. Although 25 degrees is better than 10....And as far as a drier month, there's another blizzard predicted for the coming week as well. Guess it's just a normal, snowy February.

Cold and Wet ?

I am assuming it will be cold and wet late February early March in the Virginia / Washington DC area
