Snow, Soon

We recently visited the Farmer’s Almanac to see when the snow would be in Anchorage.

To quote, “ Winter season temperatures will be above normal, on average, in the north but below normal in central areas and much colder than normal in the southern portions of the state. The coldest periods will occur in early to mid-December, mid-January, early February, and mid-March. Precipitation will be above normal in the northern and east-central regions, much below normal in the south, and near normal in the west-central area. Snowfall will be above normal in the northern and eastern parts of the state and near or below normal in the south and west. The snowiest periods will be in early to mid-November, mid-January, mid-February, and late March.

April and May will be cooler than normal, with precipitation near normal in the north and below normal in the south. Snowfall will be above normal in the north and below normal elsewhere.

Summer season temperatures will be 1 to 2 degrees below normal, on average, with above-normal precipitation. The warmest temperatures will occur in mid-June, early July, and mid- to late July.

September and October temperatures will be below normal in the northern portions of the state and below normal across central and southern portions. Precipitation and snowfall will be below normal.”
How it will really go, who knows until we are looking back at the days of Winter. While the data accumulates, we will enjoy the longer nights and clear skies. Already, Jarvi Homestay wears its strongs of white holiday lights on the porch and deck railings - with these in place, Winter must remain at bay!
