Farmer’s Almanac 2021-2022 Winter Forecast Predicts Deep Chill for Atlantic Corridor

By Annalise Knudson.

STATEN ISLAND, N.Y. — Get ready to bundle up. It will be a cold winter season in New York City, according to the Old Farmer’s Almanac 2021-2022 Winter Weather Forecast.

The forecast comes with a winter warning — to prepare for a “Season of Shivers” as most of the United States will feel bone-chilling, below-average temperatures.

“This coming winter could well be one of the longest and coldest that we’ve seen in years,” says Janice Stillman, editor of The Old Farmer’s Almanac.

In the Atlantic corridor, which includes New York City, winter temperatures and precipitation will be below normal, on average.

Make sure to get your winter coats, scarves, gloves, and hats out this winter — the coldest periods will be in early, mid-, and late December, as well as mid-January, and early to mid-February.

While the Almanac predicts we won’t see as much snow this winter season, it shared when we could see the snowiest periods in the city. Prepare your shovels in mid- and late December, early to mid-January, and again in mid-March.
