ARKANSAS – It's been a pretty mild summer, so far. Does this mean Arkansans should be bracing for one brutal winter?

According to the Old Farmer’s Almanac: yes and no. The old fashioned weather resource has released the "2015 Long-Range Weather Forecast" and for Deep South, which includes Arkansas it will be a colder, dryer winter.

"Winter will be much colder than normal, with below-normal precipitation," the almanac predicts. "Snowfall will be near or slightly above normal in the north, but significant snowfall is unlikely in central or southern areas. The coldest periods will occur in late December and January, with the snowiest periods across the north in mid- and late December and early January."

The forecast goes onto to say spring will be warm and wet and summer will be hotter than normal.
