The Old Farmer's Almanac group drops it's annual Christmas weather forecast for the year, and it seems a white Christmas is inevitable.

An indigenous group of weather forecasters referred to as the Old Farmer's Almanac has predicted blanket of snow coverage across most parts of the country on Christmas day.

This new development has left kids and holiday lovers dreaming of frosty snowman, snowball fights and snow angels come December 25.

According to the long-range forecast, however, the icy rains are set to engulf other parts of the country, presenting a white-washed Christmas instead.

As published by the Old Farmers Almanac, residents of the Northeastern region should expect a "snowy, picturesque Christmas day" in contrast to the rain-snow mix likely to grace the Atlantic Corridor, Appalachians, and Ohio Valley.

Dreams of a white Christmas might yet be fulfilled in the Upper Midwest, Heartland, Lower Lakes, Alaska, High plains and intermountain, with a forecasted spray of fresh flakes covering the lands on the days before Christmas, and by any luck, on the big day as well.

But this gets a little harsh tending towards the Northern Tier of the country as the publication predicted "parade of snowstorms" in cities between Central Washington and the Upper Midwest.

The Old Farmer's Almanac is the oldest periodical that is continuously published in the country, which records and predicts astronomical events, tides, and weather with respect to time.

Sadly, there would be no trail of white scenery in other cities like Florida, Texas-Oklahoma, and along the pacific coast. Rather, the holiday would have to be rustled amid periods of rainfall punctuated by an overall cooler weather.

The weather forecast gets weirder with the promise of an expected sunny Christmas day in Hawaii and the Dessert Southeast, with clear skies. Think "a sunny Christmas on the beach." Perfect!

The Almanac's 2020 winter forecast went on to reveal the expected Canadian weather, predicting a white mass covering the grounds of the already snow-engulfed region.

Cities like the Southern Ontario, Prairies, most of Atlantic Canada, and Southern Quebec would likely experience the white flakes on Christmas day, but the stats are unclear for the British Columbian Weather, which most likely would not snow.

The Old Farmer's Almanac is the oldest periodical that is continuously published in the country, which records and predicts astronomical events, tides, and weather with respect to time.

The first issue of this accurate weather-forecasting periodical was published in 1792 under the guidance of Robert Thomas.

Due to its over 80% accuracy in predictions, the Almanac's popularity increased rapidly, so much so that it grossed over a hundred percent increase in patronage by the second year.

It has since remained North America's most popular reference guide, documenting 80.5% accuracy in last year's forecast.
