“This coming winter could well be one of the longest and coldest that we’ve seen in years,” says Janice Stillman, editor of The Old Farmer’s Almanac.

They say this winter in Missouri and Illinois, specifically, it's going to be "cold, snowy" and feature "several storms."

They tout an 80% weather accuracy rate on the website, but some weather experts will dispute their prediction technology – or lack thereof. Its weather-predicting formula was created in 1792 but claim to have "refined and enhanced that formula."
