Buckle Up Bunkie, Hard Winter In Store For Wisconsin

September 7, 2016

Wisconsin could be in for a long, cold winter, according to the Farmers’ Almanac.  What we have to look forward to is a frigid forecast: “Return of the Ice Cold Winter” is how the Farmers’ Almanac describes the upcoming winter.

Madison and most of Wisconsin will face “numbing cold” and snowy weather, according to the almanac. The guide, which has long predicted the weather months ahead of time, is not a reliable source for the weather—but who is not going to stock up on new sweaters just in case they are right?

After all they may hit the nail on the head!

Meanwhile AccuWeather meteorologist Paul Pastelok said the long, cold and snowy prediction is a safe bet thanks to La Niña, an ocean-atmosphere phenomenon that is basically the wintry counterpart to steamy El Niño.

Winter is too far away to make an official prediction, Pastelok said, but research so far shows folks in this region should not expect the tolerable, mild winter of last year.

    To paraphrase a local tee vee weathercaster when this story first broke: ‘…we can’t even accurately predict the weather five days out!’

    Sounds awful. I know ppl get used to and some actually like the snow and ice of numbing winter…I don’t think I’d like any part of it. Altho August in Texas is equally unbearable, the rest of the year suits me. I guess ppl adapt and like where they are…or they would be somewhere else. Still, buy those sweaters just in case.
