ATLANTA, GA — With football season starting, we can hope that summer’s heat and humidity will ease up in the Atlanta area. While more comfortable conditions would be great, a glimpse at the winter forecast is full of cold weather, precipitation and gloom — at least if you believe the Farmers’ Almanac.
The centuries-old forecaster has released its prediction of what’s to come this winter, and it will make you stock up on boots and warm sweaters, or contemplate a move to Florida. “The Northeast, including the densely populated corridor running from Washington to Boston, will experience colder-than-normal temperatures for much of the upcoming winter,” the almanac said. Atlanta falls in the Southeast region for the almanac’s purposes, and we’re supposed to have above-normal winter precipitation over the eastern third of the country. “Brisk and wet” is the how the forecasters sum up the coming winter for the Peach State.
