Farmer's AlmanacHow the Forecast Affects NC

This winter is looking pretty, well…average. According to the Farmer’s Almanac, this coming winter season is looking very similar to last winter. Texas and Southern Central States will be seeing a cooler winter, but nothing they aren’t used to. As for us, it’s looking pretty consistent, so we won’t be blindsided by any crazy snow…who wants any of that anyways…snowmen are lame… *sigh*

According to the Almanac’s editor, Peter Geiger,

“It’s like Winter Déjà vu, [...] last year our bitterly cold, shivery forecasts came true in many states including the 23 eastern states that experienced one of their top-ten coldest Februarys on record. This year many of these same states may want to get a jump start now and stock up on lots of winter survival gear: sweaters, long johns, and plenty of firewood.”

According to the Farmers’ Almanac, the winter of 2015–2016 is looking familiar, meaning don’t get too hyped up about the possibility of a white Christmas. If you’re out looking to live the snow life, head to New England, the North Central States, or Ohio, where you’ll find plenty of snow to satisfy your snowboarding, skiing, and sledding needs. Before you go, however, make sure you gear up your home by winterizing your irrigation systems and prepping your home and lawn for the coming winter (since it seems to last forever!). 

We’ve talked about winterizing plenty before, so here’s some resources to refresh yourself  on what has to be done, and what could be done to make your life easier come springtime:

Rainy Days Southeast Weather Forecast

Southeast Weather Forecast

From Raleigh, North Carolina to Columbia, SC and down to Savannah, GA, The Old Farmer’s Almanac has a long-range weather forecast for the southeast region of the US this year that includes a warmer-than normal April and May.

This Spring looks to bring thunderstorms and then the Summer will be hotter than normal, with above-normal rainfall, especially near the coast. The hottest periods will occur in mid- and late June and in mid-July.

The Fall prediction shapes up a little differently. September and October will be slightly cooler than normal, with near-normal rainfall. And we can expect a hurricane threat in mid-September.

When it comes to planning your summer irrigation in the South, it’s important to be prepared – no matter what weather heads our way. With the heat waves streaks that we are normally accustomed to, this means your lawn gets drier and hotter and irrigation will be a key component to a healthy turf. However, if we receive above-average amounts of rainfall it is just as equally important to have a proper drainage system installed to accommodate extra water flow.
