Now that Labor Day has come and gone, summer has unofficially come to an end. Though summer is not officially over until September 23rd, many people across the country have already packed their shorts and swim suits away, opting instead to fill their dressers with long sleeved shirts, pants, and other autumn attire. Fall is almost here. Then, before you know it, Jack Frost will be nipping at your nose. And, if predictions are accurate, we are in for another harsh winter.
According to climate experts at the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration, Baltimore is primed for another snow-filled winter. And the Farmer’s Almanac agrees, calling for a colder-than-normal and wetter-than-usual winter. The 198-year-old publication uses a secret formula based on sunspots, planetary positions, and lunar cycles to predict weather patterns.
“We’re calling for some frigid conditions, bitter conditions,” said managing editor Sandi Duncan.
