I know, I know, it's not even cool outside yet and we're already talking about snow and ice. If you haven't heard the news it's looking like winter will be coming early for Oklahoma this year according to the Farmer's Almanac. They're predicting our first snow and ice storms to happen before we celebrate Thanksgiving.

Well, that's not good. Unless of course, you're into really cold temperatures that are below average and enjoy sleet, ice, snow, and trekking through the frozen tundra. The extended winter forecast is cold and wet.

According to the Farmer's Almanac, we'll be seeing snow in OK. before Thanksgiving

You can check out the Winter forecast and get a glimpse of what things will be like in Oklahoma starting in November by visiting the official Farmer's Almanac website. Like last year we can expect freezing temperatures and more than likely snow and ice a few times throughout the winter months. It should start in November and we'll see snow and ice several times well into February, maybe even all the way into March.

Now would be the time to get prepared and make sure you have everything you'll need to brave the cold. If you're a cold wussy like me my winter coat will be out way before winter gets here, followed by gloves and hats. I hate the cold. It can be a 110 outside and I wouldn't complain, but I'll be the first one to the truck with his hands in the heater when it's 35. So needless to say I'll be more than prepared before the first freeze.

So if you're wondering just how accurate the Farmer's Almanac is they're usually a little above 80% when it comes to correctly predicting weather patterns. The odds aren't in our favor that they're wrong. Maybe you're into winter and look forward to it. In that case, you're in luck especially if you're wanting snow and ice.
