Old Farmer’s Almanac Predicts Warm Winter For Cheyenne
Good news and bad news, Cheyenne. Unfortunately, summer is almost over. On the bright side, according to the Old Farmer's Almanac, we're in a for a warm winter.
The popular publication predicts southeastern Wyoming will enjoy above average temperatures from November to March. However, they are also calling for more snow this winter and another cold, wet spring.
Our first snowfall is projected to come early this fall. The almanac is forecasting the first flurries to arrive during the last week of September.
Typically, January is the coldest month in Cheyenne, with an average high temperature just over 37 degrees. Luckily, January and February are usually the dryest months of the year. While April showers might bring May flowers in other regions, here in the high plains, May is the wettest month.
Since 1792, the almanac has predicted future weather patterns across the country with an 80% accuracy rate (or so they claim). Hopefully, they're right this winter. One thing's for sure, we can always expect plenty of wind in Wyoming.
