The Farmers’ Almanac Has Released Their Christmas Weekend Weather Prediction

Here's what you can expect in Ohio.

Are you dreaming of a white Christmas?

In a normal year, I’d be right there with you. I love waking up to snow on Christmas. It just makes everything seem more festive. But this year, I’m breaking rank.

That’s right folks. This year, you won’t catch me wishing for a white Christmas at all. I haven’t really been able to spend much time with my family this year, and one thing I’ve really been looking forward to is the possibility of being able to visit my parents, outdoors, for the holiday.

And even though I usually like the snow, it’s largely because I’m inside, warm, away from the pretty, but cold and wet, happenings. Since it will be an outdoor affair, I’ve been patiently waiting to hear some weather predictions for the holiday weekend, and the Farmers’ Almanac has come in clutch once again.

So who’s getting a white Christmas this year? Not Ohio.

According to the Farmer’s Almanac, the Great Lakes, Ohio Valley, and Midwest region, which includes Ohio, Michigan, Indiana, Kentucky, Illinois, and Wisconsin, will get through the holiday weekend with some cloudy skies.

In fact, most of the country won’t see snowfall on Christmas this year, with the exception of the northern Central part of the country, including the Dakotas, Nebraska, Kansas, Colorado, Wyoming, and Montana.

Here’s what the Farmer’s Almanac predicts for the rest of winter in Ohio.

Weather in Ohio can be notoriously fickle, so you should always be prepared for the sky to change its mind at any moment. But if you were hoping to do some outdoor activities over the holiday weekend, you probably won’t have to contend with fluffy snowflakes.
