ST. LOUIS (KMOX) – Since 1792, the Old Farmer’s Almanac has been predicting the weather and this winter it looks like they’ve got it right.

The Almanac takes a look at climatology, meteorology, and solar science in making advance weather forecasts.

Editor Sarah Perreault tells KMOX their 2014 winter prediction has been right on target for Saint Louis.

“In September, when the book came out, we let everyone know that it was going to be below normal temperatures and above normal snowfall for much of the U.S.,” says Perreault.

She says to expect below average temperatures in March, but above average temperatures in April.

She says the Old Farmers Almanac has an 80-percent accuracy rate with its predictions.
