well, that looks like a pretty bleak forecast for my area. wet and a mild. Translates to slushy snow with a lot of melt off. But one good thing. The Farmers Almanac is only 50% right, 50% of the time...

Is al gore calling the shots for the Farmer's Almanac? It's saying mild just about everywhere, even Canada! I smell a rat...   ::)

Planning ice trips based on the weatherman never seems to workout unless there's a major storm. With the big stuff, at least here in WI, they're pretty good.

I feel they can't predict a weeks forecast right.
Never mind a whole winter.
I agree with Freddy,,,Time will tell.

Most of these predictions go of of historic data and patterns. Depending on what the southern oscillation does (el Nino or el Nina) and what it's strength is will determine what kind of winter we have. Ice will come......

If the past 3 winters are any indication we are due for nasty one here in Iowa. I have to be optimistic because the last 3 have sucked for us. I realize that I'm in central Iowa and on the edge of the ice belt but we should get a 2 month season at least, not a 3 week season like we've had the past 3 years. We are due for a cold nasty winter. Mark my words!!!

The Farmer's Almanac is calling for a cold and snowy winter from Pennsylvania to Maine and for a good season for the rest of us.  I sure hope this one is the one that turns out to be right.

I like the "Farmer's Almanac since 1818" forecast much better than the"Old Farmer's Almanac founded in 1792" ...   ::)

I understand. According to the southern oscillation we will be average on temps and snow if things don't change

I am on board with that ....a foot of ice and 3 inches of snow is my sweet spot .

That is if the ocean temps stay average.......if they start to change then El Niņo or el Nina will go into effect....right now they are average and haven't been showing any signs of change.
