Farmers Almanac makes 'bold' prediction for Super Bowl

Since the 1700's the Farmers Almanac has been making long-term predictions on the weather, mainly for the use of farmers.

But the book is branching out to sports fans. 

For 220 years the Farmers Almanac has been giving us tides, moon rises and long range weather forecasts.

But it seems with all the money the NFL brings in even the Farmers Almanac wants a piece of the action.

But the famous guide doesn't try to guess the score, just the weather for the upcoming Super Bowl in East Rutherford, New Jersey.

The game is outdoors -- in February -- yet the Almanac was bold enough to say it was going to be cold with a winter storm possible.

It probably doesn't take a Tim Deegan to realize that's not a stretch.

Though they did nail the 1907 Knickerbocker crisis -- partly cloudy that day. Not bad.

Just seems that while folks pile on the NFL for an outdoor winter game in the Northeast, the almanac is being opportunistic. Some of the greatest games ever were played in the snow.

As for the 2015 Superbowl in Glendale, Ariz, Tim and I are getting ahead in the forecast game.

We agreed for that Superbowl the air will be dry enough to where you'll want to bring some chap-stick.
