Old Farmer's Almanac v. El Niño: Who Will Win?

New, 4 comments

You might not have heard, but there's a 90 percent chance this strong El Niño that's brewing lasts through the winter. It may even keep chugging through spring. But you know who's not impressed? The Old Farmer's Almanac. The folks behind the almanac went back to their necromancy rituals secret formulas and came out with a forecast that seems at odds with what you'd typically expect from a strong El Niño. The almanac predicts that this winter ends with below average precipitation for California and a cold, snowy season for much of the Northeast. How will that jive with the typical El Niño cycle of wet southern states and mild northern areas? Because of this disagreement, we want to hear from Curbed Ski readers. Vote in our poll about which forecast will be proven right at the end of the season.

Remember folks, vote with your heads not your hearts.
