This summer of 2023 was miserable, and this is coming from someone who loves the heat. Oh yes, I will take 30 straight days of 100 degree days over one day of 50 degrees or below. But even I have to admit that it was hot. But that doesn't take away the fact that I Hate Cold Weather. That's why I'm not looking forward to the 2023-2024 winter forecast from the Farmer's Almanac. In Tyler, the first frost is predicted for November 20. But what about for the folks in Longview, Texas? Let's find out when you can finally break out the hoodies.

First Frost for Longview

The Farmer's Almanac has always been a reliable source for the weather forecast in your particular area. Sure, it's not an exact forecast but it does sum up what to expect pretty good. That gives us plenty of warning so we aren't surprised when we walk out in shorts and t-shirt one morning. For the state of Texas, the Farmer's Almanac predicts a colder and wetter than normal winter for the state. That goes for East Texas as well. But as we're still dealing with mid-90s for highs right now, when can we expect the first frost of 2023 to hit Longview? That would be November 14.

Texans will need to bundle up, as unseasonably cold weather is forecast throughout January and February, with a possible major winter storm in mid-January.

Winter Forecast for Texas

Overall, Farmer's Almanac is forecasting above normal precipitation with colder than normal temperatures for Texas. This is because of the El Nino over the Pacific Ocean. The El Nino is also what's causing the extremely hot temperatures over us right now. There is also the possibility of a winter storm moving in late January that can be categorized as a major winter storm. But it is hard to determine just how severe it could be at this point.

Summer Ain't Over Yet

I can handle some cold and some snow but the week of Snowmageddon in 2021 was awful and I don't want to deal with something like that again. Until then, we're going to have to deal with these 90 degree days for at least another month or so. We've had Halloween's that were in the middle to upper 90's before. I wouldn't be surprised if that was the case for this year.
