Minnesota Weatherguide

Minnesota's favorite calendar and almanac for nearly 50 years


2024 Weatherguide cover photo

Northern Minnesota photographer Ed Lee took this stunning photo of the northern lights in Lake County, and we are thrilled to feature it on the cover of the 2024 Weatherguide Environment Calendar and Almanac.

Each year, hundreds of talented professional and amateur photographers submit their work for consideration in the Weatherguide. We thank each of them for their contributions in supporting Freshwater's research, policy and educational programs.

Workin on it.

We are busy working on the 2024 Weatherguide Environment Calendar and Almanac, which will be available for purchase in August. Become a member of Freshwater, and you'll receive a free calendar while supporting important research, policy and education programs that help preserve our water resources.

Weatherguide photo submissions

The Weatherguide photo submission window closed in January, 2023. We are not taking any additional submissions at this time. Get ready, though, we will be opening submissions up for the 2025 Weatherguide calendars in November, 2023!

Meet our photographers!

Last year we had 1,600 photos submitted to the 2023 Weatherguide calendars and only space for 125 photos to be published between both the wall and engagement calendars.

We greatly appreciate being able to share the talents of our wonderful photographers with more than 20,000 people each year.
