According to the new 2014 Farmer's Almanac, a major storm could plow on top of next year's Super Bowl XLVlll. It's predicting a particularly active year for winter storms.

The almanac was published Monday. 

The almanac predicts a big snowstorm the first week of February in the New York and New Jersey area.

That's the same location and same time of Super Bowl XLVlll outdoors at Metlife Stadium.

"You can conjure up whatever it is going to be with combination of rain, snow, sleet and lots of wind that would impact the game. I do not think it will impact people getting to the stadium, but will impact how the game is played," says Peter Geiger, the publisher of the Farmer's Almanac.

According to Geiger, the almanac has an 80-85% accuracy rate.
