Since 1818, the Farmer's Almanac has been predicting long-range weather for every season in the United States and Canada. How do they do it? From the Farmer's Almanac website, this is what state editor, Peter Geiger, had to say,

Based on our time-tested weather formula, the forecast for the upcoming winter looks a lot different than last year, quite divided with some very intense cold snaps and snowfall.

The Farmer's Almanac tells us that the mild winter we experienced last year will NOT repeat itself this winter. Their forecast looks quite different from the winter of 2019-2020. The Farmer's Almanac is forecasting the possibility of a good old-fashioned New England blizzard during the second week of February that may bring up to 1-2 feet of snow.

Some of the 'highlights' depending on whether you love or hate the snow, is a major east coast storm between the 12th and 15th of December. Because I'm a premium member, not braggin', I have access to the Farmer's Almanac's complete forecast for 2021.

I only include what might be the more severe weather issues for this upcoming winter, according to the Farmer's Almanac. Between November 4-7, the forecast is calling for stormy weather with heavy rains possibly mixed with sleet and wet snow. It looks like January is shaping up to be a bitterly cold month.

The Farmer's Almanac is looking at February as the snowiest in New England with significant snowfall forcasted between the 4-7 and possibly blizzard-like conditions between the 12-15.
