Farmer’s Almanac 2019-2020 Winter Forecast

The Farmer's Almanac publishes forecasts every August that look ahead to the upcoming winter season. These are widely circulated as a "bonafide forecast" for what to expect during the winter months across the United States.

But as we discussed ahead of the 2018-2019 season, there continues to be no track record of accuracy from the Farmer's Almanac and every other long-range forecast for the upcoming winter season. These forecasts cover multiple months but we know that skiing quality improves and degrades with storm cycles that last a few days to a week.

Paying attention to the 1-10 day forecast (All-Access only) is the way that you'll find powder and give you the best information for your weekend trip or destination ski vacation.

One final note: There is not one but two Farmer’s Almanacs. The "Old Farmer’s Almanac" was started in 1792, while the "Farmer's Almanac" began publishing in 1818.

While there is no track record of accuracy for these season-ahead long-range forecasts, they are still fun to look while we dream about future powder days.
