2013/14 Long Range Winter Predictions from The Farmers’ Almanac

Coming off of a few less-than-impressive years of snowfall, resorts and riders across the country are crying out for a hefty helping of snow for the 2013/14 season. The weather gurus over at The Farmers Almanac have been hard at work forecasting what the following months hold for the snow-obsessed, and the verdict is in.

What’s in store for North America:

It’s going to be a cold one, ladies and gents. Over two-thirds of the country will be dealing with lower-than-average temperatures, with the thermometer dropping most severely over the Northern Plains and east on towards the Great Lakes.

The brains over at the Almanac are predicting some serious snow for the Midwest, Great Lakes, New England, with Southeast New York and New Jersey also getting in on the game. Unfortunately for the Pacific Northwest, the forecast is calling for a drier-than-average season, though excessively low temperatures are expected there as well. February is ‘flagged’ as the month to watch, with snowfall expected to grace all parts of the country, while the forecast also calls for some serious storms through March.

Oh, Canada:

The Farmers’ are calling for an exceptionally cold season for our Northern neighbors, with predominantly lower-than-average temperatures taking over from roughly east of the Rocky Mountains to the Eastern Great Lakes. The most drastic temperatures will run south and east across the Laurentian Plateau to the Great Lakes, with only the Pacific Coast and Maritime Provinces expecting closer to normal temps.

On an unusual note, British Columbia should expect a little less precipitation than normal. Ontario and Quebec, on the other hand, should prep for a snowy winter season, while farther east, the Maritimes may find themselves trading between bouts of rain and snow. Heavy snowfall is predicted across the entire country, however, with the same stormy fronts expected in the US hitting throughout February and March.
