Default 2013 Winter Snow Prediction - Farmers Almanac

The publisher of the 196-year-old almanac is predicting a divided nation this year with some areas on the east coast seeing a return to a normal winter while others out west will still get a milder version.

The Almanac predicts Iowa will experience wild temperatures swings and periods of storminess during winter 2013.

Much of the Midwest is expected to experience a milder than normal winter with average precipitation. Wisconsin and Illinois could see colder than normal temps with a varied mix of snow, sleet and rain.

The Almanac said people from the Great Lakes to northern New England should get out their long johns and dust off their snow shovels because it's going to be cold and snowy this winter.

The formula for the prediction was created by almanac founder David Young in 1818 was based on planetary positions, sunspots and lunar cycles. Since then, historical patterns, weather data and a computer have been added to the mix.

The Maine-based Farmers' Almanac is not to be confused with the New Hampshire-based Old Farmer's Almanac. Both issue annual forecasts, with the Old Farmer's Almanac scheduled for next month.

It said last winter was supposed to be very cold with average snowfall. I don't think you can ever get a good guess as to how the winter will be.
