Continuing a tradition almost as reliable as the winter season itself, the "Farmers' Almanac" revealed its annual long-term weather forecast Monday, this year predicting an overall "kinder and gentler" season for the contiguous United States.

For the eastern third of the country (New England down to Florida and as far west as the Mississippi River), forecasters predict "much colder-than-normal winter temperatures" -- but generally not as frigid as conditions felt last winter, which saw 49 states experience snowfall. New England in particular should be sure to bundle up, as forecasters predict a "cold slap in the face" compared with last year's uncharacteristically mild winter for the region.

Across the Western states (Pacific Coast to the Rockies), a "milder-than-normal" winter is expected. The Midwest and central states should expect about normal winter temperatures.

I love this! I have had such a horrible summer in this scorching heat here in Florida, I am sick of it already. Let's get started with winter A.S.A.P.!

In my neck of the woods it should be colder than average so that's a good thing for me since I love the cold weather.

Thanks!

Enjoy your 'cold' weather in Florida (LOL)

I'm glad I moved a little farther west!

Yeah it never really gets cold here in Northern Florida, but it's better than 90 with heat index of 110!

I am making a prediction right now. Mainly for the midwest. We are going to get nailed with snow this winter. More snow then last year and last year was a bad one. Colder temps also but the snow will just keep coming. Make sure you have at least a 3 month supply of food and water on hand.
And a fireplace or wood burning stove so when the power goes out you wont needlesly suffer.
