According to the Farmers' Almanac, this winter will be filled with so many ups and downs on the thermometer, it may remind you of a "Polar Coaster."

"Our extended forecast is calling for yet another freezing, frigid, and frosty winter for two-thirds of the country," said Editor Peter Geiger.

The Almanac is predicting that the worst of the bitterly cold winter conditions will affect areas east of the Rockies all the way to the Appalachians.

It says the coldest outbreak of the season should arrive during the final week of January and last through the beginning of February.
