Numbingly Cold Conditions Won't End For Spring!

After what the Farmers’ Almanac predicted would be a “numbingly cold” winter, the well-known weather prognosticator warns that warmer weather won’t be on the horizon any time soon.


According to the calendar, spring officially arrives at 7:44 a.m. (EDT) March 20, 2009; but sources at the Farmers’ Almanac predict that the cold weather will not depart as easily as many hope.

The 2009 Farmers’ Almanac issued a “Numbingly Cold” winter forecast for most regions of the country. The accuracy of that prediction was borne out by the heavier-than-normal snow that pounded New England and many of the northern Great Lakes and Plains States, as well as the freezing conditions that invaded the typically temperate southern states and the unusual snowfall in areas such as Las Vegas, Nevada, and Atlanta, Georgia.

“Anticipation of warmer weather is high,” shares Peter Geiger, Philom., Editor. “People want to shut off their heat, start their gardening, and shed their winter wardrobes. Unfortunately, the Farmers’ Almanac is predicting a very slow start to the spring season.”

According to the 2009 Farmers’ Almanac harsh winter weather will persist well into the coming months, with unseasonably cold temperatures gripping most regions through the end of April. A major storm system is also expected to batter the Eastern half of the continent with cold and precipitation in mid-May. The southern U.S. should see dry and hot conditions during early May, making way for cooler, wetter weather toward the end of the month. Wet, cool conditions are expected to persist in the northern U.S. through much of June, with southern states seeing more typical hot, dry weather into the start of summer.

“Fortunately, if you can make it through the cool, unsettled spring season,” Geiger states, “summer looks like it’s going to be warm and moist in many areas.”

It's actually been pretty accurate for my region this year. They missed a major snow storm but they've been dead-on for temps and precip. :D

in the rain gauge. No hail here. :D

I don't understand how any sober thinking human being can take Al Gore seriously.

I was frightened for a while, have a corner office (2nd floor), all windows. The trees surrounding the building were waving like crazy and beating against the glass. I moved for a while to get away from the windows.

It's beautiful here now. The grass is growing like crazy. I've never seen it as green.

Deniers, write this down and stick it on the frig...

Global warming does not mean the end of winter or cold weather... It does, however, mean the end of Spring and Fall...

I really do hope this all blows over, as it were, unfortunately for the Oil and Energy Lobby, the chickens are coming home to die from frost bite or dehydration.

On the upside, if you live far enough upriver from a major city--that is, close to the water source, but a safe distance from any civil disorder or rioting--your home values will be going up soon. As long as your not in a flood basin.:)

That florida swamp land will be worth a lot of money if this turns out to be an ice age.
