Old Farmer’s Almanac Spring Forecast Released
I know you get your reliable weather information from Chief Meteorologist Dan Zarrow, but it’s always fun to see what some of the less scientific forecasts say. Now that we’ve passed the vernal equinox, let’s see what one of them has to say.
The Old Farmer’s Almanac (not to be confused with the regular Farmer’s Almanac, a competitor) has released its spring forecast, as reported by Patch.com.
The almanac calls for warmer than normal temperatures across the United States, except for Florida and the desert southwest, where they predict cooler than normal temperatures. There are no specific forecasts for New Jersey (unlike what you get from New Jersey 101.5), so I have to assume that we are grouped with above normal temperatures for the spring.
The long-range forecast for the “Atlantic Corridor” (Boston to Richmond) indicates that “April and May will be warmer than normal, with near-normal precipitation in the north and below normal in the south. Summer will be warmer and slightly drier than normal, with the hottest periods in mid-June and early to mid-July, late July to early August and late August. September and October will bring near normal temperatures in the north and above normal in the south and will be wetter than normal.
Incidentally, the competing Farmers’ Almanac indicates that spring in the northeast will be drier than normal with seasonal temperatures.
Feel free to ignore these two almanacs and listen to Dan Zarrow’s forecast every 15 minutes on New Jersey 101.5 or anytime on nj1015.com.
