The Old Farmer's Almanac Predicts 'No Fewer' Than 7 Big Snowstorms This Winter.

'The Old Farmer's Almanac just released its annual extended forecast for winter 2019-2020.
The Almanac predicts "a repeat of last winter's record-breaking extremes," including heavy snow and freezing temperatures.
Make sure you have a reliable pair of snow boots, because you're definitely going to need them this winter.

Not long after the Farmers' Almanac suggested it would be a "freezing, frigid, and frosty" season, the *other* Farmer's Almanac has released its annual weather forecast—and it's equally upsetting.

While the first publication focused on the cold temperatures anticipated this winter, the Old Farmer's Almanac predicts that excessive snowfall will be the most noteworthy part of the season.

The Old Farmer's Almanac, which was founded in 1792, says that the upcoming winter "will be remembered for strong storms" featuring heavy rain, sleet, and a lot of snow. The periodical actually used the word "snow-verload" to describe the conditions we can expect in the coming months.'>>>

2. Why do people listen to this almanac ? 80% of last year predicted accurately ? I'm asking out of

ignorance . I used to see them at check out counters but never opened one up
Since 1792 so must be doing some correct predictions I guess
the article said 80% of last year’s almanac predictions were correct but are there years they are completely wrong does anyone know or what else do they publish ? Planting seasons ?
Do real farmers really go by these books?

This was NOAA last fall saying it would be mild in Chicago for winter 2018-19
The coldest temperature in Chicago in 34 years (-23°) was recorded on the morning of January 30, 2019 + stayed cold through spring . Not dry either .....
They do say only takes one storm to change everything seems we had a few cold snaps

CHICAGO (WLS) -- If you're not a fan of a lot of snow and like it warmer, then you may enjoy the latest Winter Outlook from NOAA's Climate Prediction Center. NOAA released their Winter Forecast for the entire United States today, and along with the most of the country, the Midwest looks drier and milder
