I missed getting the 2019 almanac and I want to know when the first freeze of the year is expected. I have a few projects I absolutely have to get done before the first freeze. Thanks!

October 2019 weather in Vermont, New Hampshire, and Maine

Texans have a trip planned for Oct. 8 - Oct. 18, 2019. We know that weather is really difficult to predict these days; but it will help us plan or stay if we know what the folks who live there are expecting. We have been several times, but we never tire of the beauty of New England.
Would appreciate any advice that you give. Thanks

Christine, The June and July weather predicted are already posted above. We post the current and next month on our Web site as a courtesy of The Old Farmer’s Almanac publication which includes the full year of predictions. Note that long-range (vs short-range) predictions are based on regional weather, not down to the local town level. For that, we would advise looking at a 10-day forecast when the time comes. Sincerely, your OFA editors

Weather prediction for July 6th in central Vermont?
