Much of the U.S. may be suffering through scorching summer temperatures and an ongoing drought, but Labor Day is right around the corner. So, as summer begins to wind down, and as people think of cooler temperatures, the question then becomes, What will this winter be like?
Fortunately, right on cue, the Farmers’ Almanac has released its 2022/2023 winter weather forecast. The forecast, which actually was released earlier than usual this year amid “growing concern over the rising costs of heating oil,” warns that this winter will have people across much of the country “shaking, shivering, and shoveling.”

Since then, those rules have been refined and turned into a closely guarded formula.
