The Old Farmer's Almanac, a trusted 223-year-old publication, has made its predictions for this winter and next year. How bad could it be?
Well, it says the eastern two-thirds of the country will have a "super cold" winter. It should be noted that the term "colder" can be as little of 2 to 5 degrees colder than normal. Does that "Super Cold" could easily end up being 5-8 degrees?
As for next summer, they predict it will warmer than usual throughout. Rain in the midsection of the country could be non-existent and that could hurt crop fields.
Should you believe what they are predicting? Well, on average they have been 80% right over the course of their history. We dare say that you should take their prediction with more than a grain of salt.
