Winter is coming to Charlotte and the Farmers Alamanac says snow is coming too. The summer heat will be around for a while…But that will eventually go away. As November rolls around, the days will be shorter and the weather will turn colder.

According to the Farmers Almanac  the entire country will see wet weather. Looking at the southeast we “will see frequent storms bringing cold rains and a wintry mix of wet snow, sleet, ice, freezing rain — as well as chilly temperatures.”

Looks like January will be cold in the Carolinas as well. The almanac then goes on to say “Fortunately, for the snowbirds, February will likewise warm the region to near-normal winter season temperatures overall.”

January is typically the snowest month of the year here in Charlotte. So it’s not a stretch to think it’s possible to snow winter weather during January 2023.

So how right is the Farmers Almanac? And what’s the formula? The secret formula used by the Farmers’ Almanac is based on sunspot activity. That’s not all though. Tidal forces resulting from the moon’s gravitational pull, planetary alignment, and other factors are included as well. It’s known only by the almanac’s weather prognosticator, who goes by the pseudonym, Caleb Weatherbee.

So how likely is it that this prediction comes true? “Winter is coming to Charlotte and the Farmers Alamanac says snow is coming too?”

The Farmers’ Almanac claims that its “forecasts are 80% to 85% accurate.” So that’s pretty dang good! Bundle up. Buy a shovel and a sled!
