Above-normal snowfall can be directed to those parts of the country this weekend, according to the Farmers’ Almanac.
If you have the sweltering heat and humidity that blanket much of the country this summer, get ready for a rough winter.
The Farmers Almanac is predicting a “colder-than-normal” winter of the Continental Divide on the east, with “teeth chattering” cold arrives mid-February in the Northeast, the Great Lakes, and even in the Southeast.
“In contrast to the stories storming of the web, our time-tested, long-range formula is in the direction of a very long, cold and snow-filled winter,” editor Peter Geiger said in a statement on the website of the company. “We stand by our forecast and formula that accurately predicted the many storms of the past winter, as well as this summer is hot, it is hot.”

Included in the cold outlook is above the average snowfall expected for the Great Lakes and New England, with some snow expected in the Middle of the Atlantic ocean and the New England December.
When it is cold, the end, the Farmers’ Almanac says that a strong March could have a “powerful east coast storm” that could keep up with snow on the ground in the spring.
The Farmers Almanac says it bases its long-range forecast “on a mathematical and astronomical formula developed in 1818.”
US OPEN OPINION CLOSE OF THE ROOFING AS THE TEMPERATURE OF THE HEATING
It is not to be confused with the rival Old Farmers’ Almanac, billed as the oldest magazine in North America, which also issues seasonal weather forecasts.
If you are looking for a milder winter ahead, Old Farmers’ Almanac calls for “above-normal temperatures almost everywhere in the United States,” in addition to more rain instead of snow.
“Our milder-than-normal forecast is due to a decrease in solar activity, and the expected arrival of a weak El Niño, which will prevent the cold air from lingering in the North,” the publication notes.
What is needed is to engage with the runways clear of snow

But don’t go on the way to the store for more kick, but, as meteorologists say that it is almost impossible to figure out the weather that far ahead.
“The ability to predict events that far in advance is zero,” Penn State Meteorologist Paul Knight told the Des Moines Register. “There is no proven skill, there is no technique that is agreed in the science be able to do that.”
Fox News Senior Meteorologist Janice Dean may also summarize the best way to the cold predictions.
