Farmer’s Almanac Predicts Sheets of Sleet for South Jersey This Winter
Sheets of sleet?? That's what could be in store for us this winter as The Old Farmer's Almanac predictions are in for the winter of 2020/21.
I guess it could be worse, I'll take sheets of sleet over significant amounts of snow every winter. I'm just not a fan of the white stuff anymore. I would love to have a a winter without having to worry about snow, blizzards, ice, wind and freezing temps.
Warmer than normal temperatures could keep things wet instead of white for us as the almanac is predicting a light winter for 2020/21.
The Old Farmer's Almanac was founded in 1792, This is the 229th consecutive forecast for the almanac. The publication claims the forecast is 80 percent accurate.
NOAA, also known as the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration has just released the long range forecast for the upcoming winter season. According to ski.com, we have a 55% chance of a La Nina winter which means a warmer and wetter winter season could take place for the duration of winter. There is a possibility of colder temps to start to the 2021 spring season which could lead to snow to start the spring.
