September Wedding

Hello! I am getting married on September 27,2019 in Fall River, MA, the ceremony is outside. Any predictions for weather? Thank you!

Weather from Boston to Maine 1/20-1/22/19

Hi all,
I am thinking about driving from Boston to Camden ME 1/20 and returning 1/2219. Wondering what precipitation might be like since (although I have done it a lot) I am not wild about driving in heavy snow. What are your predictions about those two days? Thanks! Kirsten

Your trip !

I think it’s a roll of the dice at this point... we are pass due for snow as of 1/8/19 ! I don’t think you’ll be driving in a snow storm, but I do think you’ll be driving on some snow covered roads during your trip! Hope this helps !!

day surgery at Lahey sometime in March

Hi I grew up with the Farmers Almanac, my question: I have to have surgery for a meniscus tear in my knee I want to know what is the weather like from Cape Cod to Peabody Massachusetts for the Month of March. It is usually a snowy month, I want to schedule my surgery in the morning, it is 1 1/2 hours long with 3 to 4 hour observation. When will it snow or not. You guys are on the money with your predictions and you are a trusted resource. You predicted 2018 to be dark and it was cloudy and rainy for most of the world.

March conditions

You are referring to places in Region 2; see here: https://www.almanac.com/weather/longrange/region/us/2

We can tell you that we do not have any snow in the March 2019 forecast for Region 2, but there are predictions for rain at the beginning, middle, and end of the month. (Note that there is a snowstorm forecast for Region 1, northern New England, between March 13 to 22, and if the wind switches, it could affect southern NE.)
