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

Hello! I was wondering what

Hello! I was wondering what the weather will be like for this winter, (in terms of snow!)
Oh, and I want the weather in Central NJ, (Trenton Area)

Hi, Shaan, Here are our winter predictions by U.S. region. Our long-range predictions are based on weather regions (versus state/city). For more detail, we hope you’ll pick up a copy of our annual book—The 2021 Old Farmer’s Almanac!.Stay cozy!

Snow 12/2020

The snow we got in South Jersey, Cumberland County, was a rollercoaster. First, excitement for family fun to ride in snow, then rain to take it away in about an hour. Meanwhile 50 mins North, Cherry Hill, I went and made money shoveling the next morning. Doesn't seem fair.. Missing my winter trips living in Maine for the winters, and the snow we used to enjoy here so much years ago. Please give us some snow...

More hurricanes/storms in summer??

Not happy to read about a hurricane in early August. This area doesn't usually see storms like that this early. I know this past summer we had Isaias (sp?) which hit here (LI, New York) as a moderate tropical storm, but a hurricane?? I hope this prediction doesn't end up coming true. For what it's worth, I remember the tropical storm threat predicted for this area back in mid-October and it never materialized. Fingers crossed this one won't either.

Weather Blah

2020 summer was terribly hot and humid with 3-4 tropical storms that came up the coast. This second Nor'easter that just blew through dumped 6-8 inches of snow and sleet in SE PA. I've had enough water in all forms for quite a while.
