How does the Farmers’ Almanac predict weather?

The Farmers’ Almanac was founded in 1818 and utilizes a secret formula, with components such as “sunspot activity, tidal action, the position of the planet” to predict long-range weather forecasts. The forecasts are typically made two years in advance and are made by Caleb Weatherbee, a pseudonym for all the combined forecasters since the Almanac first began.

Over the years, fans of the Farmers’ Almanac have calculated that the predictions are accurate 80-85% of the time.
