Do you follow the Farmer's Almanac? Some swear by their predictions, while others dismiss them and pay no attention. I must say that my curiosity always peaks when the Almanac comes out with the Winter predictions. People will always say "I hear it's going to be a rough Winter" and I guess it comes from the Farmer's Almanac and their forecasts for the upcoming season. So lets break down the upcoming Winter season, according to the Farmer's Almanac.

December: Temperatures look to be above normal, however looks like the coldest weather comes in Late December around the Holidays, better get the hot chocolate ready for Santa!

January: Looks to be a colder month (that's a stretch lol)

February: Coldest part of the month will be early to mid February.

Snowfall this winter, according to the Farmer's Almanac, will be below normal. Sorry snow lovers, looks like a not so harsh winter here in New Jersey.

By the way, as the kids get back to school the Old Farmer's Almanac predicts a mix of rains, sunshine and cool temperatures in September.
