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?


When is the next snowstorm is going to hit NJ?

Do you think you can tell me?

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.

Hello, I have many container Vegetable plants Tomatoes, Cucumber, Peppers, Kale, and Swiss chard. still producing vegetables. I am hoping to keep them alive and thriving.
I am trying to follow your articles on how to take care of them. According to other resources I have read if you use plastic bags you can protect them for 50 to 40 degree weather in the Northeast. I just need to verify if this is possible.
I have another question I had transferred Swiss Chard to Window Boxes they look as if they they need a deeper space can I transfer them to hanging baskets will they still produce.

Vegetables in Fall Temperatures

The Editors's picture

The cool-season crops (kale, swiss chard) will certainly keep growing through the cooler temperatures of fall, especially if you cover them at night. The others, which are tender, warm-season crops, will keep maturing their existing fruit (slowly) while temps are in the 50s, but they won’t produce new flowers. You can cover them with things like old sheets or tarps, but be sure to keep the covering secured (so it doesn’t blow away) and to keep the covering off the plant. Remove coverings in the mornings.

As for transplanting chard: Yes, you can transplant it, but you’ll need to do so without disturbing the roots very much. Transplant as much of the existing soil and roots as possible. It will take a little bit of time for the chard to adjust to being transplanted, and every second counts at this time of year! Additionally, if your window boxes are right up against your house, they are likely warmer than the hanging baskets would be, so bear in mind that a change in soil temperature will slow down growth as well.


Northern New Hampshire has been in a drought starting in May and worsening through September. All forecasts were wrong about expected precipitation. There has been nothing measurable all summer and now September. We are looking for rain in the future but cannot believe the almanacs.
