Farmer's Almanac forecasts a chill

August 25, 2008|From Times Wire Reports

People worried about the high cost of keeping warm this winter will draw little comfort from the Farmer's Almanac, which predicts below-average temperatures for most of the U.S.

"Numb's the word," says the 192-year-old publication, which claims an accuracy rate of 80% to 85% for its forecasts, which are prepared two years in advance.

The almanac's 2009 edition, on sale Tuesday, says at least two-thirds of the country can expect colder-than-average temperatures this winter, with only the far West and Southeast in line for near-normal readings.
