The Old Farmer’s Almanac recently released its 2022-2023 Winter Forcast. Officials believe it's going to be a tale of "two winters." This winter is either going to be very cold and snowy or very mild, depending on where you live, according to the Old Farmer’s Almanac.

“Depending on where you live, this will be the best of winters or memorable for all the wrong reasons,” The Old Farmer’s Almanac Editor Janice Stillman reports. “One half of the country will deal with bone-chilling cold and loads of snow, while the other half may feel like winter never really arrives.”
