It's hard enough to predict what the weather will be like tomorrow, much less this winter and next summer.  Yet, the Farmer's Almanac does it every year, and is often quite accurate!  The 2015 Farmer's Almanac was released this week, and if you're dying to know what it will be like this winter and next summer, you're in the right place!

Let's start with this winter.  The almanac says expect colder than normal temperatures for the midwest.  Snowfall totals are predicted to be down as well.

The summer of 2015 looks dry and hotter than normal in the midwest.  Now, we understand that it's difficult to predict weather patterns this far out, but The Farmer's Almana has great track record.  It's been 80 to 85% accurate in predicting weather patterns in it's history.  You've been warned.
