Winter was not kind to Boise in 2016-17. And, according to the 2018 edition of The Old Farmer’s Almanac, we might be in for another harsh winter season in 2017-18.

Last winter, we had the sixth-coldest December recorded and the 11th-ranked January. Boise saw a total of 38.8 inches of snow in December, January and February — the 10th snowiest winter since record collecting began in the late 1800s.

The Old Farmer’s Almanac says that the Intermountain region of the United States, “will be colder than normal, especially in the south” and that there will be “above average snowfall.” December is predicted to average 28 degrees, down 5 from the normal temperature for the month. January and February are predicted to be warmer than average at 31 and 35 degrees, respectively.
