The Old Farmer's Almanac has released its long-range prediction for winter. 

The Almanac claims to have an 80 percent accuracy rate, although weather experts say that number is embellished, and that the almanac is right about half of the time.

Their prediction for this winter seems to match what others are saying though: ""colder than normal" temperatures with "above normal" precipitation. 

AccuWeather forecasters agree that we will experience bitter cold temps this winter in Minnesota as a result of La Niña.

The good news is that we're in for a pleasant fall. Dr. Todd Crawford, chief meteorologist with The Weather Company says temps will be pretty close to average for our region through October.
