Thursday's column reviewed the accuracy of the Farmer's Almanac. The Almanac's predictions for 2015 predict wetter-than-normal conditions for the Gulf Coast and Florida. Cold and unsettled weather is expected for November and December. Florida and the Carolinas will be "in the crosshairs" for tropical storms in late July with another threat for Florida in late August and the Gulf Coast in early September. The Texas Coast receives a threat in mid-September. Cold temperatures and frigid conditions are predicted from the Northern Plains into the Great Lakes. January and early February will find arctic air dropping temperatures across the Northern Plains to 40 degrees below zero with snow showers and accumulations for the Great Lakes.
