Why do We Listen to the Farmer's Almanac
The Farmer's Almanac has a long and storied history. It was first published in 1792 and provided useful information for farmers, including tide tables, astronomical data, and even jokes.
Its long-range forecasts were based on a complex formula that took into account a wide range of factors, including solar activity, lunar cycles, and the positions of the planets.
Over the years, the Farmer's Almanac has become an institution in American culture. Its predictions are often cited by news outlets and trusted by millions of people.
Should We Trust The Farmers Almanac's Weather Predictions?
According to an Illinois University Study, "the Old Farmer’s Almanac is roughly 52 percent accurate" yet here we are still curious about what it says.
Long-term weather forecasting is a challenging task due to the complex factors that influence weather patterns, including global climate patterns, and ocean temperatures. Local weather conditions, such as wind direction and speed, humidity levels, and air pressure all play a part.
Predicting how these factors will interact with one another to produce a specific weather pattern over a long period of time is a difficult task.
Weather To Expect for Summer 2023
The Farmer's Almanac's long-range weather outlook predicts that temperatures will soar across most of the nation, with occasional bouts of heavy precipitation and hurricane threats.
- June is expected to be stormy, particularly in the areas east of the Mississippi River. By the end of June, the heat will be felt nationwide, and temperatures could even reach 100°F.
- July will see some sweltering conditions in many areas, especially around the 4th of July holiday.
- The middle of August will likely bring even hotter temperatures, with some areas experiencing heat indices approaching 110°F.
Above-average rainfall looks to be headed our way too.
So, get ready for a summer of sizzling temperatures and extreme weather conditions. Prepare to turn up the AC and you might as well stock up on sunscreen because summer 2023 is going to be a hot one!
