Al­manac: Plenty of cold, snow for this win­ter for North­east

The Washington Times Daily - - NATION -

LEWIS­TON | North­east­ern­ers, keep

your mit­tens, boots and show shovel handy.

The Farmer’s Al­manac, on sale this week, predicts a snowy win­ter from Mary­land to Maine, with five coastal storms to bring win­ter mis­ery to the re­gion.

The pub­li­ca­tion, now in its 200th year, isn’t afraid to go out on a limb with long-term weather fore­casts that rely on a for­mula founder David Young first used in 1818 that uses sunspots, tidal ac­tion and other fac­tors shunned by mod­ern sci­en­tists.

Ed­i­tors are look­ing to re­deem them­selves after miss­ing the mark when heavy snow failed to ma­te­ri­al­ize in the Mid­west and weather in the mid-At­lantic states was milder than an­tic­i­pated last win­ter.
