It starts getting chilly in late September


PITTSBURGH (Newsradio 1020 KDKA) - The unofficial end of summer comes Monday with Labor Day and thoughts turn to colder months to come. So what is the winter forecast?

The Farmers’ Almanac is predicting a “teeth-chattering” cold season with plenty of snow. Editor Peter Geiger says they start using the word “chilly” in late September and they expect a chilly Halloween.”

“I think we have like three storms in December and we don’t specifically say snow or rain but we talk about coastal storms, so I’m beginning to think it’s going to be a white December and then we talk about two big storms in March.”

The Almanac also says there is a possibility we could have some white stuff around for Christmas this year.

Geiger adds a lot of what happens the first of the year depends on the temperature but he expects very cold temperatures with  a big storm to greet us after the first of 2019.

Their forecast also predicts a blast of bitter cold in mid-February.

The Farmers’ Almanac also has plenty of “life-hacks” including who to eliminate streaks when cleaning windows, how to eliminate getting egg shells in your food and an easy way to cook your corn on the cob.
