Should be warm winter
The good news is, according to the Old Farmer's Almanac anyway, the 2012-13 winter should be mild and dry. Well, good news for those not wishing for lots of snow and cold temperatures anyway.
More good news (again, depending on who you are): The 2013 summer should be cool and wet.
