On the cover of the “Old Farmer’s Almanac,” it reads that the collection of weather forecasts and astronomy tidbits are meant to be “useful, with a pleasant degree of humor.” On the Almanac’s website, it’s explained that the text has been read since 1792 by people who wanted to know what to expect from their crops, the weather, the tides, and dinner with tried and true recipes. The “Old Farmer’s Almanac” comes out every September, and it reserves the title of “North America’s oldest continuously published periodical.”

This year, WFAA writes that the Almanac “…predicts a cold and snowy winter, with the coldest weather in Texas running from ‘late November into early December’ and the ‘snowiest periods in late December and early to mid-February.'”

If making snow angels and being stuck at home due to ice on the roads isn’t your idea of a good time, you might be upset to learn that the Alamac is supposedly 80 percent accurate, so this year could turn out similar to the snowy winter of 2013.

On the other hand, the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration’s Climate Prediction Center is predicting a warmer winter than last year. In a few months, Texans will get to see whose prediction is correct.
