The Farmers’ Almanac is out with the extended forecast for the upcoming winter. And, Managing Editor Sandi Duncan says for us in Minnesota, it’s probably what you’d expect…

“We’re saying it’s called the winter of the great divide, with cold and snowy conditions in the north, drought in the west and everything crazy in between. But for your area specifically, we’re calling for cold temperatures with above-normal snowfall.”

The cold and snow is forecast for many of the north-central states including the Great Lakes region. But, above-normal snowfall is forecast for the western Dakotas, Montana, Wyoming, and Colorado.
