In an exclusive interview, we talked to a representative of the Old Farmer's Almanac who revealed just how harsh of a winter we can expect.

The Old Farmer's Almanac has been prognosticating the weather for over 100 years. Using the activity of the sun, the publication claims to be able to predict weather patterns and trends that will happen throughout the year.

Many people swear by the weather forecasts made by the Old Farmer's Almanac, while others dismiss it as folklore. Whatever you believe, the predictions made specifically for the Hudson Valley this winter may be something you want to pay attention to.

The Hudson Valley may experience a milder than usual season, but there are some key weeks during the winter that you'll want to watch out for. Significant snow is in our future and could impact your travel our outdoor plans. The most concerning thing the almanac is predicting, however, takes place closer to spring. Here's Janice Stillman with The Old Farmer's Almanac explaining exactly just what that means for us.

The 2019 Old Farmer's Almanac is available in stores now.
