As reported by the American-Statesman’s Amanda O’Donnell, the Farmer’s Almanac is predicting a “stinging cold, average precipitation” winter for Texas, Louisiana, Arkansas, New Mexico and Oklahoma. However, during the month of December, above-normal precipitation is expected in the South. The almanac also predicts that heavy rain will kick off fall in Texas in early October and bring with it lower temperatures along the Gulf Coast. The Farmers’ Almanac uses a formula developed in 1818 to make long-range weather predictions.
