Nature knows

I live in Coshocton, OH. Zone 6. The robins haven't left. Bluebirds paired up. Maybe they know something that Channel 4 doesn't know.

Pretty Off

I live in between Cincinnati and Columbus and the predictions have been wrong so far for the most part. And the next few days, JAN 20-24 are expected to be WARM and rainy. The opposite of the predictions for that week. But also, it's been a horribly record breaking winter here. The Temps have been averaging around 0 since December and dry up until early January.
I know yall aren't perfect and no one truly knows the weather, exspecially as far advance in time you guys do it.

Almanac Really Missed Predictions fo Ohio Valley

Live in Lancaster, OH, and weather we've experiened since Christmas has really been far from what Almanac predicted for our area both in temperature and snowfall! We've been FRIGIDLY COLD and much more snowfall than was predicted! So, how did the trusted Almanac miss their mark for Winter weather prediction this badly? Now, I have to question what has been stated for the remainder of our Winter! Any reasonable explanations? Thanks!


Hey will we get any blizzard this winter 2018

Sally deals

I heard that there is a snow storm coming to the Ohio valley this weekend.
