The 2018 Farmer's Almanac is predicting "stinging cold" weather in Texas this winter.
Meanwhile, the reval Old Farmer's Almanac is at odds with that prediction. It says we'll have a "warm, dry" winter.
To add to the confusion, the outlook from NOAA shows uncertainty for Houston's winter, indicating an equal chance for normal, above-normal and below-normal temperatures but with wetter weather.
Nonetheless, Farmer's Almanac editor Peter Geiger stands by his publication's prediction, saying, "Our time-tested, long-range formula is pointing toward a very long, cold, and snow-filled winter." He says the annual publication relies on a century-old mathematical and astronomical formula for its long-range outlooks, "reputed for their accuracy."
