Farmers Almanac predicts catastrophic cold winter.
""Numb's the word," says the 192-year-old publication, which claims an accuracy rate of 80 to 85 percent for its forecasts that are prepared two years in advance."
"The almanac predicts above-normal snowfall for the Great Lakes and Midwest, especially during January and February, and above-normal precipitation for the Southwest in December and for the Southeast in January and February. The Northeast and Mid-Atlantic regions should be getting an unusually wet or snowy February, the almanac said."
Of course, the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration have boo-hood the prediction saying:
"While he wouldn't comment specifically on the almanac's ability to forecast the weather two years from now, [NOAA] said it's generally impossible to come up with accurate forecasts more than a week in advance."
So they can't forecast the weather 2 weeks in advance, but know for a fact that the ice caps will be melted in 5 years and the coastal areas will be inundated.
What say you, Mr. ManBearPig?
