Are you dreaming of a white Christmas?
Minnesota. Maine. Upstate New York. The Allegheny Mountains of Pennsylvania and West Virginia. Practically anywhere in Idaho. And of course, the Rockies or the Sierra Nevada Mountains. These are the places where weather history suggests you want to be if you’re looking for the best chance of a white Christmas.
The map above shows the historic probability of there being at least 1-inch of snow on the ground in the Lower 48 states on December 25 (White Christmas) based on the latest (1981-2010) U.S. Climate Normals from NOAA’s National Climatic Data Center. Dark gray shows places where the probability is less than 10 percent, while white shows probabilities greater than 90 percent.
Will we see a white Christmas this year? Well if you’re a snow lover, the early indications do have a low pressure system moving in around Christmas Eve. As of now it seems to be of the rain variety, and it looks to stay that way. But if you want to travel to see a white Christmas, here is the forecast below from WXedge!
