The Old Farmers' Almanac forecasts are out. Winter Weather Forecast 2016 – 2017 The Winter Weather Forecast from the Old Farmer’s Almanac is here. We’re less than 100 days away from opening day at some resorts in North America and the question on everyone’s mind is: Where will it snow? The Old Farmers’ Almanac released their long range Winter Weather Forecast for 2016-2017, and things are looking good for a strong winter in North America. Their regional forecasts, which are calculated 18 months in advance and claim to have an 80% accuracy rate, purport the Northeast and Pacific Northwest to have the most favorable winters for snow enthusiasts. Dive into their regional winter weather predictions for a glimmer of where you could score the deepest days this year, and stay tuned for NOAA’s official Long Range Winter Prediction and dropping later this month.
