"More Accuracy from the Farmer's"

2 years ago Wednesday, December 05, 2012 4:36:50 PM CST December 05, 2012 Wednesday, December 05 2012 Dec 5, 2012 in Pat Shingleton Column

Wednesday's column recognized the Farmer's Almanac and the expectations for Zone 5 which incorporates Louisiana, Arkansas, Oklahoma, Texas and New Mexico. Some preliminary meteorological model runs are suggesting sharply colder weather for our area near the 17th of December. This change will especially be felt in Northern Arkansas and southern Missouri. The Almanac is suggesting the same and where there may be limited accuracy within this time frame other Zones offered some interesting results. Zone One incorporates the northeast where the Farmer's Almanac predicted "some snow" for the first of the month which did occur. Almanac predictors were somewhat accurate for Zone 7 that includes California with a prediction at the end of November that stormy weather and gales would hit the California coast with storms exiting.
