Farmers' Almanac winter is the total opposite than what NOAA's Climate Prediction Center is for 2010.

Farmers' Almanac winter, NOAA prediction. Farmer's Almanac winter prediction 2010 are in, but NOAA's Climate Prediction Center contradicts report. The Farmers' Almanac is predicting a "kinder and gentler" 2010 winter for the United States.

Almanac predictions have been pretty relevant over the years. It predicts this winter as moderate, and not so harsh as last year. However, the Farmers' prediction does not mean that it will not be bad. During winter in 2009, 49 states received snow, including record snowfalls in the Northeast.

Winter will be mixed in some states. "Overall, it looks like it's going to be a kinder and gentler winter, especially in the areas that had a rough winter last year," managing editor Sandi Duncan said in a statement. The east coast, from New England to Florida, could receive "much colder-than-normal winter temperatures." However, they will not be as frigid as conditions felt last winter. New England in particular should be sure to bundle up.

2010 predictions by NOAA's Climate Prediction Center is contradicting to the report from the Farmers' Almanac. The Almanac says the Northwest will experience a mild winter and the Southeast will have colder temperatures. However, NOAA has stated the opposite, they show cold weather in the Northwest, and warmer temperatures in the east.
