OKLAHOMA CITY – After a mild summer, many Oklahomans are preparing for a brutal winter.
However, an old-fashioned resource used for weather says this year’s winter weather may be better than you think.
According to the Old Farmer’s Almanac, Oklahoma’s winter will be calmer than normal.
“Winter temperatures, precipitation, and snowfall all will be below normal,” the almanac said.
Residents can expect the coldest temperatures to hit the state between mid- December and late January.
Experts say the snowiest periods across the north will occur in mid-to late December and early to mid- January.
After the winter months end, the almanac says April and May will be warmer and rainier than normal.
The summer months in 2015 are expected to be hotter and drier than normal, despite a hurricane threat.
However, it says September and October will be cooler and rainier than normal in 2015.
