Winter weather? Almanac says 'Numb's the word!'

By JERRY HARKAVY, Associated Press

LEWISTON, Maine - People worried about the high cost of keeping warm this winter will draw little comfort from the Farmers' Almanac, which predicts below-average temperatures for most of the U.S.

"Numb's the word," says the 192-year-old publication, which claims an accuracy rate of 80 to 85 percent for its forecasts that are prepared two years in advance.

The almanac's 2009 edition, which goes on sale Tuesday, says at least two-thirds of the country can expect colder-than-average temperatures this winter, with only the Far West and Southeast in line for near-normal readings.

"This is going to be catastrophic for millions of people," said almanac editor Peter Geiger.

If I remember correctly, we had a mild winter last year (in NY anyway) so we're due.  I just love shoveling the driveway  Roll Eyes

I hope the almanac is wrong. †We had all time record snowfall and record setting cold last winter. †A 2 inch ice storm Dec 1 didn't melt until March. †Most of the cities around here ran out of salt in January. †We have come within a few degrees of the record lows for July and August. †Only in the 90's 3 times all summer. †It is not a good start for a mild winter.

Another update.

Up North may see patchy frost tonight

Here's some news you probably hoped you wouldn't hear for another four months.

The National Weather Service says areas of northeast Minnesota and northwest Wisconsin could see patchy frost this weekend. That's right, patchy frost in August.

The weather agency says clear skies could allow temperatures to dip into the low to mid-30s late tonight into early Monday.

Meteorologist Roman Berdes says an unusual cold-air mass from Canada will bring lower temperatures, but warmer air from the central Midwest should replace it by Monday.

Berdes says these temperatures are uncommon but not unheard of. He says those areas saw temperatures in the 20s at this point in 2004.

In the Milwaukee area, today's forecast calls for a high of 75 today and a low tonight of 54.
