Farmer's Almanac predicts cold winter in Northeast

When fall rolls around, researchers expect warmer than normal temperatures and more rainfall. Summer is projected to be cooler and slightly drier than normal, with more rainfall than normal projected for fall along with near-normal temperatures.

The Farmer's Almanac forecast, which is often poo-poohed by modern meteorologists, is based on a "secret formula" that founder Robert B. Thomas designed using solar cycles, climatology, and meteorology. Overall, the Old Farmer's Almanac predicts the 2016-2017 winter season will be far more active than the 2015-2015 season.

The "Farmer's Almanac" outlook for Greenville calls for a warme- than-normal winter with below-normal precipitation and near- to below-normal snowfall. Above normal rainfall is expected.

The Old Farmer's Almanac, founded in 1792 and celebrating its 225th birthday, says this winter will be a shift from last year's mild winter.

Spring will be rainier than normal and temperatures will be below normal in the north.

Residents in Region 11, which is the Texas-Oklahoma region and includes portions of New Mexico, Oklahoma, and Texas, may experience a winter that is warmer than average. Snowfall will be above normal in NY and IL and below normal elsewhere, with the snowiest periods in mid-November, late December, early and late January, mid-February, and early March. As for precipitation there's again an equal chance of falling in line with averages from November through December; but the back leg of winter is much higher: there's a roughly 40 percent chance that precipitation levels will be above average levels January through April.

Hawaii, which is Region 18, is predicted to have a winter with below-average temperatures and below-normal precipitation for winter 2016-2017.
