The long hot summer is hopefully getting ready to come to an end and many of us are ready for cooler weather! The Farmers Almanac has finally released their 2017 long-range predictions. Let's check it out......

The Almanac predicts plenty of cold temperatures and heavier precipitation up North saying to look out for the second half of January and the first half of February. These two months will be the coldest and wettest that region has seen in awhile.

This serious winter warning takes aim at people living in the northeastern region of the U.S. The Almanac predicts that more snow and colder temperatures will hit the northern states in late winter.

Conversely, the middle and southern regions of the United States will receive below normal or normal snowfall. Additionally, warmer temperatures will descend on these regions in late December. You’ll probably have plenty of time to enjoy the great outdoors through the end of 2016.

Texas and Oklahoma are predicted to have a warmer winter than usual. The coldest temperatures in the region are predicted for late December through mid-late January.

There it is, straight from The Farmers Almanac for 2017. Now we'll wait and see!!
