2023 Old Farmer’s Almanac winter predictions

The 2023 Old Farmer’s Almanac, the newest edition of North America’s most trusted Almanac, is telling “A Tale of Two Winters,” predicting that this winter will split the country in two.

“Depending on where you live, this will be the best of winters or memorable for all the wrong reasons,” reports Janice Stillman, editor of The Old Farmer’s Almanac. “One half of the country will deal with bone-chilling cold and loads of snow, while the other half may feel like winter never really arrives.”

Officials from the Old Farmer’s Almanac claim that for 231 years, the Almanac has been helping readers to prepare for the season ahead with its purported 80 percent accurate weather forecasts.

For most of the western half of the United States, The 2023 Old Farmer’s Almanac is predicting a coming winter that’s “Wet and Mild”— one with lots of (mostly) rain and temperatures that trend upward by as much as several degrees above normal. This is in stark contrast to what’s foretold for the rest of the country.

Winter for much of the Midwest and along the East Coast is best described as “Shivery and Snowy.” The eastern half of the U.S. should brace for potentially record-breaking cold to define the season. This frigid forecast extends to the Deep South and Texas, which could see the mercury diving as much as 8 degrees F below normal, the almanac states.

Freezing temperatures will also bring above-average snow totals to most areas in the eastern U.S. that typically experience snowfall.

In addition to its much-anticipated weather forecasts, other useful insights from the 2023 Almanac include:

Dispatches from family farms: stories from a diverse group of independent farmers taking big risks that pay off personally, in their communities, and for the environment.

Gardening tips for perfect perennials and chiles for every palate. Also, gardening trends for the coming year (a sneak peek: 54% of young adults would rather go to a garden center than a night club).

Festive food: delicious dishes and family traditions from a Ukrainian Christmas and sweet and savory winners from the Almanac’s banana recipe contest.

Practical life advice: a straightforward method for organizing keepsakes and sometimes surprising home remedies to handle hay fever.

The 2023 Old Farmer’s Almanac is available for just $7.99 wherever books and magazines are sold. A full list of stores that carry The Old Farmer’s Almanac is available at Almanac.com/Wheretobuy. Print and digital copies of The 2023 Old Farmer’s Almanac are also available online at Almanac.com/Shop and on Amazon.com.
