Fall is rapidly approaching, and winter will be here before we know it. The Farmer's Almanac has been predicting a pretty awful winter for most of the eastern US, but what about Florida? Ah, things are looking bright and sunny as per usual, and we are totally thankful.
According to the old and perhaps untrusty Farmer's Almanac, Florida will be averaging normal temps for the majority of the winter months, with January being the predicted coldest.
Their winter weather summary from Nov 2019 - May 2020 reads: "Winter will be milder and drier than normal, with the coldest temperatures in mid- and late January into early February and the second half of February. April and May will be hotter than normal, with rainfall above normal in the north and below normal in the south."
This doesn't sound too shabby considering there are a ton of weather predictions going around stating that the northern regions of North America are going to be getting hit pretty hard with a "Polar Coaster." While it sounds kind of cool, it's probably going to be literally cool AF.
According to CNN, the Farmer's Almanac predictions should not be taken as an actual set-in-stone forecast, however. Their senior meteorologist and executive director stated in 2016 that it's hard enough to predict the weather 5 days in advance, let alone for an entire year.
So what exactly does this mean? It means that everyone who is planning on moving to Florida to get away from the Polar Coaster should definitely reconsider - we are already full of super bad drivers.
Regardless if the predictions are true or not, Florida winters are known for being mild and dry. So we can expect lots of 70-degree days with low humidity! Hurray!
