"Cold Conditions Are Back" Almanac Warns of 2017-2018 Winter


After two years of tepid winters, the Northeast should prepare for the return of bitter winter weather, according to the Farmer's Almanac.

Though fall is still more than a month away, the Farmer's Almanac has developed its predictions using a proprietary algorithm created in 1818. This year, it says to expect a freezing, snowy winter for Pennsylvania and the Northeast, including Ohio, Virginia, West Virginia, Maryland, Delaware and New Jersey.

“Cold conditions are back,” a release on the Almanac’s website stated. “This winter is expected to be a bit more ‘normal’ as far as the temperatures are concerned, especially in the eastern and central parts of the country–chiefly those areas to the east of the Rocky Mountains–with many locations experiencing above-normal precipitation.”

Predictions for 2017-2018 include a snowy winter from Maryland to Maine, with five winter storms along the East Coast. The forecast includes indications for heavy snow storms on the following dates:

  • January 20-23
  • February 4-7
  • February 16-19
  • March 1-3
  • March 23

Residents of Pennsylvania, Ohio, Virginia, West Virginia, Maryland, Delaware and New Jersey are advised to prepare themselves for snow and freezing temperatures, with conditions more severe than we have seen in the past two winters.
