    Farmer's almanac is total crap though and isn't exactly meteorology (no offense). While I agree long range forecasts are not great, the farmer's almanac is something totally different and totally worthless.

    Their crap is no more or less accurate than anybody else's. All long range forecasts are totally worthless! What I find amusing is that FA seems to recycle the same Hippie Dippy forecast every year.

    Here's another example from Weather Bell predicting normal snowfall for the northeast last year.

    This year will be "different".

    This also does not mean that cold and snowstorms are imminent. It does mean that at the very least the state of the atmosphere is completely different from last year at this time and that the outcome should be different as well. We will be watching the weather patterns closely over the next few weeks to see how it evolves.

    ...the one big mystery in this is whether this different hemispheric look that is developing will translate into a wetter than normal pattern in the drought areas. There is nothing that says we can’t go from warm and dry to cold and dry for the next several months.

    I think I saw one, maybe two, lady bugs this season so far.
