Should You Bundle Up on New Year’s Eve?

Should You Bundle Up on New Year’s Eve?

If you’re headed outside on New Year’s Eve to ring in 2011, be sure to check out the Farmers’ Almanac’s long range predictions before picking out your outfit.

With cold, unsettled conditions forecast for much of the U.S. and Canada in the closing days of 2010, look for the skies to clear up nearly everywhere as we move closer to the New Year. Only the Midwest and Great Lakes region, is expected to see snow. In Canada, we expect a storm system to pound parts of Manitoba this week, and heavy winds to batter the Maritimes. Elsewhere, look for fair, but cold conditions.

Here’s a more detailed overview for each region:

Northeastern States
Some snow, rain, then fair, cold year’s end.

Midwest/Great Lakes
Some snow showers, flurries.

Southeastern States
Showery, then fair and colder.

North Central States
Clearing skies.

South Central States
Clearing for Southern Rockies east.

Pacific Northwest
Clearing skies.

Southwestern States
Clear weather moves in.

Newfoundland, Labrador
Gradual clearing, cold.

Nova Scotia, Prince Edward Island, New Brunswick, Quebec
Unsettled weather. Gusty winds for P.E.I. and Nova Scotia.

Ontario
Unsettled conditions move in from the west.

Alberta, Manitoba, Saskatchewan
Severe storm for Manitoba east. Alberta and Saskatchewan gradually clear.

British Columbia
Clearing skies.

You guys have been a tad off (a week or more) forecasting the SE. Most gulf states will see temp’s in the mid to high 70’s into the beginning of the New Year, especially Fl.

I wanted to find out what the weather will be like at Fort Benning,GA the 13th and 14th of January. I couldn’t figure out where to find it on your website. I don’t have a computer only a Blackberry so its kinda difficult at times to locate things. Any help would be appreciated. Thanks

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.
