But when will winter end? “According to the calendar, Spring 2019 starts on March 20, however, according to our outlook, winter conditions may delay spring for several weeks,” states Managing Editor and Philom Sandi Duncan. In particular, the Farmers’ Almanac is “red-flagging” March 20-23 for a potent East Coast storm that could deliver “a wide variety of wintry precipitation just as we are making the transition into spring.”
Spring, Summer, Fall Predictions
The 2019 Farmers’ Almanac, which features an orange and green cover, breaks the country into 7 zones and provides weather forecasts in 3-day intervals. Each edition includes weather summaries for all four seasons. The summer forecast according to the 2019 edition calls for “near-normal temperatures for most areas, except for the Southwest states which are predicted to be unusually hot.” A wet and stormy summer is also predicted for many areas east of the Mississippi River.
The 2019 Farmers’ Almanac officially hits the store shelves on Monday, Aug. 27, 2018. Digital versions of the Farmers’ Almanac are available from Amazon, Barnes and Noble, and Itunes.
