Sure, it's only August and we have a heat wave on the way and plenty of warm and sun filled days ahead of us before we have to think about fall and winter and everything that comes with those seasons here in the Pacific Northwest. However, we got a little look at what we can expect thanks to the Farmer's Almanac.
An unusually snowy and wet winter is predicted for the Pacific Northwest,” the Farmer’s Almanac announcement states. “Should an El Niño materialize, it could direct the subtropical jet stream into California, translating into copious amounts of rain and snow across the entire Southwest.”
For 2024, the publication states that the second week of January will be stormy, snowy and wet along the Pacific Coast.
Western mountains, including the coastal ranges, are predicted to be packed with mountain snow by early February.
