The weather has been dominating the headlines recently and while it seems like it has been anything but calm and predictable, that’s mother nature for you. Forecasting has never been an exact science and it may very well never be, but that has never stopped people from trying their best to read the upcoming weather conditions. Today we have the most modern radars and computer models to help us do exactly that and yet there are age-old ways to predict the weather.
One such way can be found in The Old Farmer’s Almanac. The popular publication has been in circulation for over the past 225 years and it provides a wealth of information on important seasonal changes which extend far beyond the weather predictions that it’s best-known for. There are also gardening tips, anecdotes, recipes, information on astronomy, and a number of other predictions for the year ahead, including ones on fashion and technology.
All those extras aside, it’s the regional weather forecasts that readers are looking for and what makes the almanac so enduring and successful. Every year the latest edition of the book is released in late summer and while the warm season is still upon us, it will be coming to a close in a few short weeks. Even though winter is at least a good three weeks away, thoughts of cold weather and snow are inevitably starting to cross people’s minds.
