Even for weather experts our Manitoba climate is unpredictable.

Jack Burnett is an editor of the Old Farmers Almanac.


He says for the past few years their predictions have not been as accurate as they used to be.


Burnett credits this to the irregular weather patterns we've experienced.


He admits so far this winter has been milder than predicted.


However, he reminds us we still have about three months of winter left, which they predict to be colder than normal.


Burnett says the mild weather in Manitoba is obviously a result of global warming and an El' Nino.


He notes although the warm weather was unexpected, the El' Nino didn't come at an unexpected time.


Burnett adds that when you use historic weather patterns to predict climate for the next year, its hard to be accurate when something bizarre occurs.
