Snow

I Live in Alexandria VA No Snow I'm alittle Dispointed this year, Please Let there be Snow 3 to 4 inches .....
Or more

Snow

I’m a little disappointed too. I thought we’d have at least one big snowstorm like last year. Based on the Farmer’s Almanac, it doesn’t look very likely to happen.

snow this year?

The Editors's picture

Remember, our forecasts are traditionally 80 percent accurate. So, although there is not a snowstorm predicted for Region 2 in February, there’s a 20 percent chance it could happen. (Remember, too: be careful what you wish for!)

Seriously, we hope you always get the weather you want!

SNOW

Yes i'm with you Jen!!! I'm just across the bridge from you in Maryland and I want one good SNOW!!!! Disappointed :(

Snow

That's strange. I live in southern Virginia near the NC border and we've had about 14 inches of snow this year. But don't worry, I think March may have a surprise for all of us.

Love you guys!..my son is

Love you guys!..my son is getting married Aug 11th in North Jersey..Hope it's a nice day!

I depend on your predictions !

Live in upstate NY. Been following you for 2 yrs. It's surreal how accurate you are, even down to the small window of really bad weather. Thank you!

I love the Farmers Almanac.

I wish it was still sold in drugstores. It is ALWAYS accurate! No one knows how you do it, but you do. Keep it up!
