The National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA) forecast that warmer-than-average temperatures were in store for the country. NOAA wrote on October 17th “Winter Outlook: Warmer than average for many, wetter in the North.” “Warmer-than-average temperatures are forecast for much of the U.S. this winter… below-average temperatures are not favored.”
However, the usually accurate Old Farmer's Almanac has provided a different climate forecasts nationally and state-by-state. For Illinois they forecast cold and snow.
Of course, Democrat-controlled Illinois, which is preparing for global warming, and putting the few and obsolete snowplows they have into storage based on the NOAA mild weather prognostication…is projected by The Almanac to have a “frigid and snowy” winter.
The Old Farmer’s Almanac forecast a brutally cold winter for 70% of the country. So far this year, the Almanac has been right on target.
