What Kind Of Winter Can We Expect? The 2014 Farmer's Almanac Says...

Posted: Updated:

CONCORD, N.H. (AP) - The other jury is in: A second periodical used for everything from predicting the weather to helping people lose weight agrees that this winter is shaping up to be cold and snowy.

The Dublin, N.H.-based Old Farmer's Almanac, at 222, is believed to be the oldest continuously published periodical in North America. It says a drop in solar activity and a change in ocean patterns are pointing to colder-than-average temperatures and higher-than-average snowfall totals.

Last month, the Maine-based Farmer's Almanac, said much the same. The younger cousin has been publishing for a mere 197 years.

The Old Farmer's Almanac predicts a cold winter for every region but the lower Great Lakes, upper Midwest and the northern states of the Northeast.

The 2013 edition officially comes out Tuesday.
