As the summer heats up, the last thing we want to think about is the cold of winter. But in a new prediction from the Old Farmer's Almanac suggest the Midwest might be hit with frigid weather this winter.

Parts of the south could be icy, and New England might see below-average temperatures and more accumulations. In contrast to the drought California has been seeing, the first half of the winter will see more rainfall than usual. Everywhere that sees snow will have a white Christmas.

Robert B. Thomas, the founder of the almanac, created a formula in the late 1700's which is still used today. It contradicts what most government officials are predicting, and some meteorologists say the predictions are too vague to be taken seriously.
