Happy fall; brace for winter

Today is the first day of fall, but it’s not too early to be thinking about winter. The 2014 edition of the Farmers’ Almanac makes a chilling prediction: This winter is going to be cold.

The almanac’s managing editor, Sandi Duncan, said: “We’re predicting two-thirds of the country will have below-average temperatures for the winter season, and in some areas the temperatures will be biting and piercing.”

The almanac, based in Maine, predicts a winter storm will hit the Northeast around the time the Super Bowl is played at MetLife Stadium in the Meadowlands in New Jersey. It also predicts a colder-than-normal winter for two-thirds of the country and heavy snowfall in the Midwest, Great Lakes. But for now, enjoy the first day of autumn.
