    Enjoy the heat while you can Chicago, because the city is expected to see another brutal winter.

    The Old Farmer’s Almanac, North America’s oldest continuously published periodical, predicts that the Chicago-area will experience a “colder than normal” winter.

    According to the Almanac, the coldest periods will be late December into early February.

    Snowfall will be above normal in most of the region, with the snowiest periods in mid-December, early and mid- January and early February.

    The Almanac also predicts the Chicago-area will experience a “hotter than normal” summer in 2015 with near-normal rainfall.

    Chicago isn't alone in this forecast.

    The publication predicts that nearly the entire country will suffer another very cold winter season and an even hotter summer.
