Farmers’ Almanac is Predicting a “Polar Coaster Winter” in 2020

Weather predictions are officially in! Get ready for a winter full of wild temperature swings and some crazy precipitation too. The Farmer’s Almanac for 2020 is out and it’s predicting a winter that it describes as a “Polar Coaster Winter”. Snowfall is going to be a big factor in the winter wildness too according to America’s most trusted weather forecast. Expect greater than average sleet and snow across the eastern third of the country, making things especially frosty. The Great Plains, Midwest, and the Great Lakes are also going to get hit hard.

The west coast — from the southwest and California to the Pacific Northwest — should see relatively normal precipitation levels and normal temperatures. The coldest outbreak by far is going to be right up through the middle of the country, from the Texas Panhandle through the northern plains and up to the Great Lakes. Specifically, the Almanac predicts that late January, or maybe as late as the beginning of February, the entire region is going to get hit with powerful thunderstorms. The storm is going to drag arctic air into the middle of the country and cause temperatures to plummet.

New England will have colder than usual temperatures as well for much of the winter as well, and that region too will see a wintry mix of rain and hefty snowfalls. Oh, and don’t expect spring to bail you out. It’s coming late. The Almanac is calling for a slow-starting spring and a long, arduous thawing process. Multiple parts of the country may be seeing frigid temperatures and even a good amount of snow until April.
