Farmer's Almanac: This winter will be 'colder than normal'

- Brace yourself - winter is coming!

The 2019 Farmers' Almanac has predicted a "teeth-chattering winter" with plenty of snow from the Continental Divide east through the Appalachians. 

So just how cold will it be? 

The almanac predicts that the freezing temperatures will last through mid-February especially in the following zones: Northeast/New England, Great Lakes, Ohio Valley, Midwest, and Southeast (yes, even the Southeast will be in the chill zone!) 

While two snowflakes are never alike, who knew long-range weather predictions could be so opposite?!#winteriscoming

According to the Farmers' Almanac, an Arctic cold front will produce blustery and bitter winds, a sharp drop in temperatures, and widespread snow showers/squall activity along and ahead of the frontal line. 

Snow way out? 

The Farmers' Almanac, which bases its long-range forecast on a formula developed in 1818, is predicting an unusually snowy and/or wet winter across the Pacific Northwest, Northeast, and Mid-Atlantic States. The thermometer in these regions is expected to hover just above or below the freezing mark, which means some of the precipitation may fall as either ice or rain/freezing rain.
