BRRR It is cold! Farmer’s Almanac Predicts the First Frost for Michigan
This is not my first walk in the park with a Farmer's Almanac.
Growing up, I would collect the actual printed-out Farmer's Almanacs for my grandfather. Since my grandfather was blind, little Lisha B would sit in his lap and read to him the specific predictions and news he wanted to hear about.
The Farmer's Almanac was a must-read in our home every single day around 10 in the morning.
Now, I will keep the tradition alive with you, my new Grand Rapids family.
Gardeners, farmers, wedding planners, vacationers, and more are questioning how this winter will be. Will this be the absolute worst winter? When will it snow?
Well, the Old Farmer's Almanac has the predicted answers. The team hints:
"our predictions for this winter will divide a nation."
According to the Almanac,
"a frost date is the average date of the light freeze in spring or the first light freeze in fall...Frost is predicted when air temperatures reach 32°F (0°C), but because it is colder closer to the ground, a frost may occur even when air temperatures are just above freezing."
Here are the predicted first fall frost dates for the state of Michigan. Keep in mind last and first frost dates are with a 30% probability.
