Farmers' Almanac

LEWISTON, Maine (AP) - Americans may want to check their sweaters and shovels - the Farmers' Almanac is predicting a cold winter.

The 2010 edition of the venerable almanac goes on sale Tuesday. It predicts numbing cold from the Rocky Mountains to the Appalachians.

Managing Editor Sandi Duncan says it's going to be an "ice cold sandwich," with milder weather on the coasts.

The Maine-based almanac issues forecasts based sunspots, planetary positions and the effects of the moon.

The National Weather Service is calling for a warmer-than-normal winter because of an El Nino (NEEN'-yoh) weather system that has developed in the Pacific Ocean.
