The almanac used to be only a publication showing the tides, weather, full moons, etc. So it would most likely come from a word referring to the weather or climate.
Wikipedia says: 'The word almanac comes from the Arabic المناخ al-manaakh, meaning "the climate".'
Almanac comes from the Arabic "al-manaakh" meaning "the climate."
