(Lawrenceburg, Ind.) – One publication predicts that Mother Nature may have payback in store for the pleasant, mild summer that the tri-state has been experiencing.
The Farmers’ Almanac, published each year since 1818, is predicting heavy snowfall and bitter cold temperatures for our area and across the Midwest.
"With a combination of below-normal temperatures and above-normal precipitation the stage will be set for the Midwest, Great Lakes, and Central and Northern New England to receive lots of snow," the publication states.
The Farmers’ Almanac forecasts that the coldest periods in the “Days of Shivery” could be in December, early January, and early February. The most snow could be seen in early December and early March.
The almanac’s estimations given from its official forecaster Caleb Weatherbee – a pseudonym used by prognosticators through generations of the almanac – are to be taken with a grain of salt. The predictions can be within a day or two of the actual events, but oftentimes miss entirely.
