The Farmers' Almanac is predicting that a major storm will hit the Northeast between Feb. 1 and Feb. 3, 2014 — right when the Super Bowl is coming to New Jersey.

"It really looks like the Super Bowl may be the Storm Bowl," Sandi Duncan, the managing editor of the Farmers' Almanac, told The Associated Press.

Super Bowl XLVIII is scheduled to be held on Feb. 2, 2014, at MetLife Stadium in the Meadowlands, home of the New York Jets and Giants. It is the first time in Super Bowl history that the game will be held outdoors in a cold-weather climate, potentially creating complications during the heart of winter.

In general, the almanac is predicting a messy and cold winter. Its secret formula is based on planetary positions, sunspots and lunar cycles, one that has not changed much since its inception in 1818. Obviously, its record can be spotty (though its editors say it is correct about 80 percent of the time), and its accuracy this time won't be known until the Super Bowl's date approaches.

Concerns have already begun popping up about some of the Super Bowl logistics. In February, NFL officials assured that the Super Bowl halftime show would go on as scheduled despite plausible weather complications.
