GRAND JUNCTION, Colo. Meteorologists with the National Weather Service said while the Farmers' Almanac makes correct predictions sometimes they get it wrong.

According to the method used by the Almanac, Colorado is expected to see a wet winter with a lot of snow like 2013, but some say otherwise.

"I can pretty much guarantee whatever happened last year won't happen this year again it goes back to every year is different here in Western Colorado," Joe Ramey, National Weather Service.

Last year the Almanac predicted part of the west coast would experience near normal precipitation, but a report from April shows the area was well below average for moisture.

The National Weather Service said the Valley may see an El Nino winter, which would mean a wet fall and spring, but a dry January and February.
