Will It Warm Up For Memorial Day?

Will It Warm Up For Memorial Day?

This spring has been a rough one. From tornadoes and floods, to fires and cooler than normal weather in some areas, the weather has been a topic of concern and complaints. And now that Memorial Day, the unofficial start of summer is fast approaching, many are wondering what the long-weekend may have in store weather wise.

According to the Farmers’ Almanac’s long-range forecast, overall it looks like the cool and wet weather will unfortunately continue for the holiday weekend.  Only the Southeast may have beach weather.

Here’s a look at the Memorial Day predictions for the weekend by region:

Zone 1 Northeast
24th-27th. Frequent rain showers, then much cooler.

Zone 2 Great Lakes & Midwest
24th-27th. Frequent rain showers, then much cooler. Threat of showers for Indy 500.

Zone 3 Southeast
24th-27th. Local thunderstorms. Warm and humid.

Zone 4  North Central
24th-27th. Colder/drier air sweeps in.

Zone 5 South Central
24th-27th. Frequent showers then turning colder.

Zone 6 Northwest
24th-27th. Partial clearing, continued chilly.

Zone 7 Southwest
24th-27th. Changeable skies: mixed cloud, sun, possible shower. Cool temperatures.

The forecast for the Northeast
at this point is very vague.
Considering that last summer’s
forecast was way off I guess they
are afraid to screw it up again.
From now through mid July it does
not say At all that it’s going to be hot, really?
I’ve used Farmer’s almanac a lot in my
life to plan important events, but over
the past two years it’s been very wrong
and I guess I understand why it’s very
vague now but that doesn’t help me
anymore. Disappointed that they can’t predict
Or won’t predict more accurately.

I use my Farmers Almanac every day and have since early childhood. I would like a little more information for daily forecast each month. I plant my garden and plants by it and also check for fishing guide as well as weather. I am 88years old now so my son gives me a copy for Christmas with my gifts each year. I think the weather will continue to get warmer here in Kansas.

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.
