NEW YORK-- With frigid temperatures in New York and New Jersey this week, just think. It could be worse.

The area could be getting ready for the Super Bowl.

In fact, next year at this time, New York will be hosting lead up events for the Super Bowl at MetLife Stadium on Feb. 2, 2014.

The soon-to-be printed Farmers' Almanac says to expect "an intense storm, heavy rain, snow and strong winds" for that weekend.

But, as WABC-TV forecaster Amy Freeze says, football fans "like a little winter weather."
