Farmers’ Almanac predicts Maine is in for a long, snowy winter

The 2019 Farmers’ Almanac was published Monday, and with it comes a hotly (or coldly, as the case may be) anticipated bit of meteorological prognosticating: the Almanac’s yearly winter predictions.

Gas up those snowblowers, folks: it’s going to be a long, cold, snowy winter.

“Contrary to some stories floating around on the internet, our time-tested, long-range formula is pointing towards a very long, cold and snow-filled winter,” Farmers’ Almanac editor Peter Geiger said in a statement Monday. “We stand by our forecast and formula, which accurately predicted most of the winter storms last year as well as this summer’s steamy, hot conditions.”
