Old Farmer's Almanac predicts colder winter, more snow

Posted:

CONCORD, N.H. (WREX) — A 222-year-old almanac is predicting the United States will have to tough it out through a cold, snowy winter this year.

The New Hampshire-based Old Farmer's Almanac's 2013 edition comes out Tuesday. It's calling for decreased solar activity and changing ocean patterns to cause a colder-than-average winter with higher-than-average snowfall.

The almanac says every region except the lower Great Lakes, upper Midwest, and northern states of the Northeast will have a cold winter.

The Maine-based Farmer's Almanac was released last month and said the same. That version has been published for 197 years.
