Everyone knows you can’t trust a meteorologist for an accurate weather prediction. Do you know what you can trust? Baltimore Bill, the official weather-predicting crab.

For the past couple of years, Baltimore Bill has predicted the coming season by scuttling off his specially built crab platform and jumping into the Chesapeake Bay. Last year, Bill predicted an early winter, and sure enough, Baltimore saw its first snow in mid-November. The year before, he got it right as well. A 100% accuracy rate is better than any other weatherman, weatherwoman, or weathercrab we’ve ever heard of; it also handily beats out Punxsatawney Phil, who gets it right only about 39% of the time.

Bill is set to make his prediction at the Inner Harbor at 10:30 am. Once we hear what he has to say, we’ll update this post to let you know whether it’s time to start breaking out the winter sweaters or not…

UPDATE: According to Bill, we can expect a lovely, temperate fall. Hooray!
