If you're ready for warmer, Spring temperatures right now, put that on pause because it might be a hot second.

The Farmer's Almanac has released their forecast for Spring 2023 in the U.S. You'll remember their winter forecast for us wasn't boding too well, featuring the phrases "hibernation zone, glacial and snow-filled". That's a real quick no from me. One catchphrase the Almanac used in their winter forecast was "shiver and shovel" and unfortunately that kind of temperature might hang around for awhile.


But now for Spring, the forecast catchphrase is a "soggy shivery Spring ahead", which really applies to most of the country. The Spring Equinox is on March 20th but according to the Almanac, there might be unusually cold temperatures around that time.

I didn't sign up for that. I need Spring ASAP.

Not only could it take a hot minute for temperatures to stay consistently warm, but it looks like it could be a stormy Spring season for us in Iowa.


The Almanac predicts that the severe storms will spread our way April through June. Which is actually on par with the stormy season anyway. Spring is expected to be "unusually active" when it comes to storms.

There could be some snow in April for the Great Lakes region and most of the country is expected to be pretty cool and wet for the Spring.

Even though we're not out of the woods on Winter yet, maybe we'll get an earlier Spring than they predict. To see Farmer's Almanac's full Spring forecast, you can check out their website here.
