February 1-3 Sunny and Mild

I love the Old Farmer's Almanac. Nothin' will change my mind about that - even sittin' heah on the mornin' of February 2, after a full night of 32 mph winds and a most impressive Nor'easter. As I sit heah with my coffee, lookin' at the snow still blowin' from the NE as the sun doesn't quite rise, I realize I can take it. It's still sunny and mild in my New England spirit.

snowy, not sunny

Good spirit, heah, thank you for your enthusiasm. Remember, too, we do not claim to be 100% accurate and we appreciate your understanding.

Wedding in Sept.

My wedding date is Sept. 25, 2021 - we are getting married in southern New Hampshire. I know its still so far out, but I keep hoping for good predictions and weather on that date!!

drought forecast for northeast?

I live in upstate NY. So far the snowfall since November has been very minimal. I'm not complaining but worried there might be a draught in the spring?

Snowstorm

When is the next snowstorm is going to hit NJ?

Hi, there,

For Region 2, which includes central New Jersey, we are predicting that the snowiest periods will be in mid-December and early March. As for big snowstorms, looking at the detailed forecast, looks like December might be the best chance, although we’re predicting it will mostly take place in the north part of the region. To find detailed predictions for December 2020 and January 2021 in your area (available on Almanac.com as of Dec 10, 2020), you can put in your zip code at the box up top. Hope this helps!

Just a bit off...October 17, 2020 woke up to snow falling and blanketing the area, we are in the Northeast kingdom of VT so early snow isn't unusual, but still no fun.
