Get Ready for Another Harsh Winter in 2014 (Video)

Via Newsy, the 198-year-old Farmers’ Almanac predicts another long, cold winter for the United States, relying on its typically obscure methods of forecasting. It should be noted that, while most forecasters were wrong about how cold it was going to be last winter, the Farmers’ Almanac was right.

Puh-leeze.

In April, this is what the Farmer’s Almanac had to say.

After an exceptionally long, cold winter and a wet start to spring for most sections of the U.S. and Canada, you might be yearning for summer and wondering what’s in store.

You may want to retract that wish, though; the 2014 edition of the Farmers’ Almanac says the coming summer will be exceptionally hot across much of North America, with “oppressive” humidity throughout the eastern half of the United States.

I’ll stick with Capital Weather Gang, not these yahoos.

Jay –

As a 30+ year student of climatology and meteorology, forecasting is never perfect. Keep in mind, CWG said 2013 was the 4th hottest year ever when in fact, it was the ninth coldest. Just sayin…

Good point.

But the headline did not say – Farmers’ Almanac says.. I think that was what got me goat going…

I made the headline out of the point that the Farmers’ Almanac was right in 2013/2014 (they were) which I linked to a story to back up my claim.
