The Farmers Almanac predicts this winter may look much like last year's cold, snowy, nearly unbearable season.  Let's face it, we're all sick of snow, but too bad for us.

The almanac, the 199th edition of which was released Monday, predicts the Eastern U.S. will have a frigid winter.  The lower part of Michigan, Ohio, Kentucky, Tennessee, the Mississippi Valley and much of the Gulf Coast will also see a colder than normal winter.

The winter of 2015-2016 is looking like a repeat of last winter, at least in terms of temperatures.  The Farmers Almanac makes its predictions based on moon phases, tidal action and even sunspots, a methodology predominantly unchanged since 1818.

Modern day meteorologists say the chance of a winter as cold as the last one is 50-50.
