Above Average Precipitation For Winter 2017-2018 Can Cause Water Damage
The Farmers' Almanac has long been what people look to forecast what the upcoming seasons will look like - we at SERVPRO of Great Neck/Port Washington always review what the Farmers' Almanac predictions are so that we have an idea of what lies ahead.
Recently they released their long range predictions for the coming winter season. For our area here on Long Island, New York we will experience above normal precipitation with a "cold and snowy" season. We can expect a good amount of snow along with cold temperatures, which can lead to ice damming, roof leaks, backed up gutters, and basement leaks.
The Farmers' Almanac has said they are also "red-flagging the 2018 dates of January 20-23, February 4-7 & 16-19, and March 1-3 & 20-23 along the Atlantic Seaboard for some heavy precipitation."
With a cold winter on the horizon, take measures to winterize and prepare now.
