Farmers’ Almanac 2010 Beach Forecast

Farmers’ Almanac 2010 Beach Forecast

Get out your sunscreen! Summer is officially here and, as we predicted in the 2010 edition of the Farmers’ Almanac, temperatures are nice hot and the skies have been mostly clear throughout much of North America. The El Niño system that brought us such wild winter weather seems to have finally passed. If these conditions persist, as we forecast they would, this should be a great summer to hit the beach.

As with any summer, though, some days will be better than others. Unfortunately for the many who get an extra day off work next week, Independence Day weekend is shaping up to be soggy and cool in most regions. In addition, several hurricane threats are on the horizon over the coming months (see our Hurricane forecast for more information). With that in mind, we’ve compiled this handy list of the best days to hit the beach this summer. Whether you enjoy hitting the waves, or just tucking into a great new summer read under the shade of your umbrella, you and your family are sure to have the some beach fun on the following days:

If you notice a hole in the upper left-hand corner of your Farmers' Almanac, don't return it to the store! That hole isn't a defect; it's a part of history. Starting with the first edition of the Farmers' Almanac in 1818, readers used to nail holes into the corners to hang it up in their homes, barns, and outhouses (to provide both reading material and toilet paper). In 1910, the Almanac's publishers began pre-drilling holes in the corners to make it even easier for readers to keep all of that invaluable information (and paper) handy.
