The almanac predicts the coldest periods will be in late December, early to mid January and early February.The snowiest periods in the north will be mid to late November, late December and early February, according to the prediction.

The almanac looks for April and May 2017 to be warmer than normal with near-normal rainfall, and summer is predicted to be slightly cooler than normal, with rainfall below normal in the north and above normal in the south. The almanac calls for the hottest periods will be in mid- to-late June and mid- to late July. September and October will be warmer than normal and slightly rainier than normal, according to the latest predictions from the Farmers Almanac.
