Old Farmer's Almanac predicts colder, snowier winter for much of country

(Dublin, New Hampshire-AP) Sept. 14, 2004 - Time to break out the long underwear. The Old Farmer's Almanac is predicting a colder and snowier winter for a wide swath of the country.

The editor-in-chief says it'll be colder than average from the Rocky Mountains eastward.

The exceptions will be Montana, Wyoming, northern New England and the Appalachians, but even these areas will be very cold toward the end of winter.

More snow than usual is expected from the Great Lakes, across New England and down to the Middle Atlantic states, and from northeastern New Mexico, across northern Texas and Oklahoma, across the Ohio Valley to the Middle Atlantic.

The almanac is the oldest continuously published periodical in North America, making its debut in 1792. It also boasts a weather accuracy rate of 80 percent.
