White Christmas Update: Probably Not

As we mentioned last year, “Since 1958, Decmber 25th has only begun with more than an inch on the ground seven times, and an inch or more has fallen on Christmas only three times,” and this year’s odds certainly don’t look much better. According to the National Climactic Data Center (part of the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration), our odds of having a White Christmas locally fall in at about 10%.

For the NCDC, a White Christmas means at least one inch of snow on the ground at 6AM on Christmas morning, and according to their breakdown, we’ve got a 10% chance of that happening (and a seven and three percent chance of having five and ten inches, respectively).

At least the roads will be fine.
