Sneak-Peek: Farmers’ Almanac’s Comprehensive Winter Prediction for Alabama
It’s been such a hot summer in the Yellowhammer State and the discussion of cooler temperatures is always a relief. Winter technically starts on December 21st, but meteorologically it begins on December 1st.
The Farmers’ Almanac is a helpful tool in helping Alabamians plan ahead. This year, they are helping you plan for Winter a little bit earlier than normal. But, why?
The Farmers’ Almanac said, “this year, with the extreme summer weather conditions broiling the country, and the growing concern over the rising costs of heating oil, Farmers’ Almanac is releasing its winter weather forecast earlier than ever.”
