Hopefully you didn’t power down the air conditioner just yet.

As the summer season starts to transition to more fall-like temperatures, we have to remember that some days in September can still get pretty toasty.

The week ahead will feature a mixture of steamy temps, rain and showers, sunny weather, and some 70 degree days.

Nighttime lows are also forecasted to be a roller coaster ride this week.

If you were hoping for a mild forecast for the upcoming winter season, you may be out of luck.

The Farmers’ Almanac, which provides 16 months of weather forecasts for seven zones in the U.S., is predicting what they are calling a “polar coaster” for much of the nation.

The Almanac says frequent freefalling precipitation as well as strong and gusty winds are forecasted for most of the winter.

January 4–7 and 12–15 could, depending on where you live, mean copious amounts of snow, rain, sleet, and ice.

“The biggest drop—with the most freefalling, frigid temperatures—is forecasted to take hold from the northern Plains into the Great Lakes,” the Almanac said.

After last year’s rough winter, it’s hard to imagine it can get any worse.

According to the Farmers’ Almanac’s winter prediction, the coldest outbreak of the season should arrive during the final week of January and last through the beginning of February.

The Almanac also calls for above-normal winter precipitation over the eastern third of the country as well as the Great Plains, Midwest, and the Great Lakes.
