2019 WINTER WEATHER FORECAST
WINTER WEATHER PREDICTIONS FROM THE OLD FARMER'S ALMANAC
2019 Winter Weather Forecast from The Old Farmer's Almanac - U.S.

ABOVE-NORMAL TEMPERATURES (ALMOST) EVERYWHERE

This winter, we expect to see above-normal temperatures almost everywhere in the United States, except in the Southwest, where we’re predicting a colder-than-normal season. Our milder-than-normal forecast is due to a decrease in solar activity and the expected arrival of a weak El Niño, which will prevent cold air masses from lingering in the North.

MORE RAIN, LESS SNOW

In terms of precipitation, we are predicting above-normal levels for most of the country, except in the Southeast, southern California, the nation’s midsection, and parts of Alaska and Hawaii, where normal or below-normal precipitation amounts are expected instead.
As for snow, we expect to see below-normal levels of snowfall in areas that normally get snow, with the interior West and a small part of the nation’s midsection being the snowier-than-normal exceptions.

2019 WINTER WEATHER FORECAST: CANADA

2019 Winter Weather Forecast from The Old Farmer's Almanac - Canada

MOSTLY COLD…

Thanks to a decrease in solar activity and the weak El Niño moving in, we are predicting colder-than-normal winter temperatures for most of Canada. The exceptions to this are northern Atlantic Canada, where temperatures will be milder than normal, and Pacific Canada and the southern two-thirds of Ontario, where temperatures are expected to be within the normal range. 

…AND MORE SNOWY THAN NORMAL

An above-normal level of snowfall is predicted for all of Canada this winter. Prepare the sleds and snowplows!
