In the aftermath of the historic snowfall of February 8, the U.S. Forest Service released a report that lays out its plan for the future.
The agency released its new snowfall forecasts for March 15 through March 31, and it says that by March 1, it expects the country to experience over 6 inches of snowfall.
That’s up from the 7-inch forecast in January and it’s the highest amount since January 2014.
According to the report, there are a total of 4 million acres of land in the U, including all of Alaska, and that’s enough to support a population of about 8.2 million.
“This winter will be the first in more than a decade that we will not have record snowfall,” the report states.
Despite the high snowfall total, the report also suggests that the U’s climate is not at all bad, and the average temperature in the country will be “well below the mid-20s Fahrenheit” during this winter.
In the winter of 2017, temperatures in the nation’s capital, Washington, fell as low as -23 degrees Fahrenheit, which is well below the freezing temperatures seen during the historic winter of 2015.
