Canadian Farmers’ Almanac’s Predicts Teeth-Chattering Winter Ahead

Lewiston, ME: If cold temperatures, above-normal snowfall, and biting winds aren’t your favorite, you’re not going to like the forecast from the 2019 Canadian Farmers’ Almanac. “Teeth-chattering” “biting,” and “cold” are a few of the adjectives the Canadian Farmers’ Almanac is using to describe the upcoming winter.

“Our time-tested, long-range formula is pointing towards a very long, cold, and snow-filled winter,” reports Editor and Philom., Peter Geiger, adding “we stand by our forecast and formula, which accurately predicted most of the winter storms last.”

How Cold?

For most of Alberta, Saskatchewan, Manitoba, and westernmost Ontario, temperatures will average much below seasonal norms. The coldest temperatures are expected during February, when -40°C, or even -45°C, may be possible.

An unusually cold February is also predicted in eastern Ontario and Quebec, with the coldest temperatures running south and east across the Great Lakes to the Laurentian Plateau. Only British Columbia will see near-normal temperatures through the winter.  Read more….. https://www.farmersalmanac. com/canadian-farmers-almanacs- predicts-teeth-chattering- winter-ahead-32455
