As we all know, Alabama has some of the most unpredictable weather of any state.  One week it is hot and sunny. The next week it is thirty degrees and raining.  Many people just want to know what to expect for this upcoming winter, and whether it will be a chilly one or not.

This winter, according to Farmer’s Almanac, is expected to be cold and dry.  This is due to the changing of the prevailing winds.  A winter such as the one we are predicted to be experiencing can be referred to as a La Nina year.  

Some things that you will want to make sure you have are: A heavy coat, a waterproof jacket, some rain boots, and a good umbrella.  Obviously these are just predictions and things can always change, especially with Alabama’s record of unpredictable weather.
