February Forecast
With its name coming from the Latin februa, “to cleanse,” February was traditionally host to the Roman Februalia, a festival of purification and atonement. This month, temperatures are looking to be slightly warmer than usual throughout the country, with the exceptions of the Pacific coast, Alaska, and the Desert Southwest. Most regions can expect temperatures to be 3 to 5 degrees above normal, but with an average temperature of 36°F, the High Plains will be a stunning 8 degrees above normal. Along the Gulf Coast, February is shaping up to be a dry month, with precipitation expected to be 1 to 2 inches below normal. In the Pacific Northwest, The Old Farmer’s Almanac is predicting 7 inches of precipitation—2 inches above normal.

Almanac weather Predictions for January

January Heat Wave
The Roman god Janus is often depicted with two faces: one looking into the past, the other into the future. This year, most of the country can expect January temperatures to be within 1 or 2 degrees of normal, with some big exceptions in the southern Appalachians, southern Atlantic Corridor, Southeast, Florida, Deep South, Lower Lakes, Ohio Valley, Texas–Oklahoma, and High Plains, where temperatures will be from 6 to 8 degrees above normal. Precipitation may be slightly above normal in most regions, except for the Pacific Northwest, northern California, and the Deep South, where rainfall is expected to be 4 inches above normal. Florida, the Southeast, the Upper Midwest, Texas–Oklahoma, and southern California can expect a drier-than-normal month.

Doubt I'll be fishing the Full Cold Moon but wish I could .Just waiting for safe ice and in the meantime trying to find time to put new flouro leaders on my Tipups and  some of the ice rods.  this week https://www.almanac.com/content/full-moon-december?fbclid=IwAR38oY4...

No ice and we got a wet snow of about 8" last night. I'm thinking the spot that produced good Crappie and especially Pickerel but small Gills ,a few years ago may be hot action  again this year .It didn't produce last year because the water was down so low .Notgonna be the case this year if  we get the ice . Hoping by New Years or a little after to be ice fishing .

Good comment Leo

November’s full Moon was called the Beaver Moon by both the Algonquin tribes and colonial Americans. The Native Americans used the monthly Moons and nature’s signs as a sort of calendar to track the seasons. Why this name? Back then, this was the month to set beaver traps before the swamps froze, to ensure a supply of warm winter furs. The November full Moon was also called the Full Frost Moon by other Native Americans.

Based on the Moon’s sign and phases in November, the best time to harvest is on the 11th and 12th for aboveground crops and on the 2nd, 3rd, 29th, and 30th for those belowground. Additionally, it’s helpful to know that during a waxing Moon, pruning encourages growth; during a waning Moon, it discourages growth.

The apps are compiled historical data that provide you so-so info. In reality, they create a predictive trend analysis rather than the real info about that waterbody. If I have to provide the percentage of accuracy, I give them about 60%.

There are way too many localized factors in play, ranging from sudden weather shifts, to atmospheric influences by the local and remote regions. Even photoperiods and geological events become extremely unpredictable. We thought we could hit the lake at night when the moon was between 3/4, full, 3/4, but we were hit with multiple days of cloud, wind, and earthquakes that those trips were spoiled with absolute no bite.
