Weather: Farmer’s Almanac vs. Old Farmer’s Almanac

Have you ever wondered how The Farmer’s Almanac calculates its weather predictions? It’s always been a little fascination of mine. Is it astronomy? Astrology? Some secret divining rod that none of us know about? Today’s post, which helps solve the mystery, was sent to me by the folks at Equipsupply.

Read below to find out which of the two is more accurate: The Old Farmer’s Almanac or The Farmer’s Almanac. I do have to point out that under “How accurate are their predictions?” the statistics shown are a little deceiving (particularly on the right), so read carefully. So far, for the Southwest at least, The Farmer’s Almanac is more accurate.
