Early 2023 could lead to more natural gas use than normal, with heavy snow predicted for two big oil and natural gas states, Oklahoma and Texas, according to the Farmers’ Almanac’s 2022-2023 Extended Winter Weather Forecast. 

In the recently published edition, the 200-plus-year-old periodical said it expects snow and an “active storm track” to run from the Gulf of Mexico to the Northeast. Areas south, which could be clear of the snow, could still see a wintry mix. 

In the first week of January, the Rockies and Plains may witness heavy snows, followed by a spell of heavy rains. It potentially could be “one of the coldest outbreaks of Arctic air we have seen in several years,” according to the Almanac.
