‘Wild & Woolly’ Winter Predicted For N.B.

New Brunswick should expect a wild ride during the upcoming winter according to the 2023 Old Farmer’s Almanac.

The publication has been making long-range weather predictions since it was founded in 1792.

Managing editor Jack Burnett says while it will be mild and snowy overall, he’s describing the upcoming winter as ‘wild and woolly.’

“In general, temperatures will be slightly above normal, we expect more precipitation than normal and more of that precipitation will be in the form of snow.”

At least five major storms are possible for southern New Brunswick and he adds the first one could arrive in late November.

Although cold spells will happen throughout the season, Burnett believes the coldest periods will be early December and early January.

The Old Farmer’s Almanac uses local meteorology, climatology and solar radiation to make its predictions.

Burnett adds staff spend a lot of time comparing their predictions to what actually happened and their accuracy rate over the years has averaged about 80 percent.
