Predicting weather, down to the day

Not sure if some of you have EVER used an Almanac in the past?!
Just ant FYI, it's NOT a fortune teller !

Huh?

Some of these questions are asking specifically about a single day- does the almanac actually predict down to the day and even time of day like some of these questions are asking? Or is that as nutty as it seems to ask?
