This winter is going to be colder than usual and next summer will be hotter than normal if the Old Farmer’s Almanac is correct.

The 223-year-old almanac is predicting a “super cold” winter for the eastern two-thirds of the United States.

“Colder is just almost too familiar a term,” Editor Janice Stillman told the Associated Press. “Think of it as a refriger-nation.”

“Colder than normal” is about 2 to 5 degrees below normal temperatures.

Winter will be colder and drier than normal, with near- to above-normal snowfall. The coldest periods will be in early to mid-December, from late December through early January, and in mid- and late January. The snowiest periods will be in early and mid-January.

The forecast also calls for next summer to be hotter and drier than normal.
