    Cold, snowy winter predicted
    Just when you thought you had gotten over last winter, be warned: The Old Farmer’s Almanac predicts that it will be super cold with a slew of snow for much of the country, even in places that don’t usually see much of it, including the Pacific Northwest.

    Look for above-normal snowfall and below-normal temperatures for much of New England; icy conditions in parts of the South; and frigid weather in the Midwest.

    The snowiest periods in the Pacific Northwest will be in mid-December, early to mid-January and mid- to late February, the almanac predicts.

    “Just about everybody who gets snow will have a White Christmas in one capacity or another,” editor Janice Stillman said from Dublin, N.H., where the almanac is compiled.
