JUST IN: Updated Old Farmer’s Almanac Summer Forecast for Minnesota
Yesterday the weather team at the Old Farmer's Almanac released their updated summer 2023 outlook for Minnesota. What started out as a wet spring, followed by a dry March and early June, now looks to be warm and wet for the rest of the summer.
If you believe in the Old Farmer's Almanac's forecasting ability, that is.
Honestly, as much as I love hot, sunny summer weather to play in, we have moved back into a moderate drought across much of Minnesota again -- and warm & rainy might be just what the doctor ordered.
