Chance of a White Christmas

Climatologically Chance of a White Christmas

This year's chance of a White Christmas
This year's chance of a White Christmas is substantially lower than what is climatologically expected for the country. We are expecting a white Christmas to happen in the Rocky Mountains, as well as the Canada/US border. There is also a low 'likely' section in the Northeast, especially by the lake effect snow belt. With no pattern changes expected soon, we believe that this is the best solution right now. Christmas is still a while off, so we will definitely be putting out some more ideas as to if this will verify. This does indeed depend on the Dec. 20 storm and the Christmas storm potential, so this map will be changing.

Good morning Andrew.I recieved my first measureable snowfall of the season.It was about a 1/2".Thia was from an Alberta Clipper.These systems i would consider are very moisture starved.There is not gulf moisture to work with with these systems usually.The snow is very powdery compared to other system snows.Hopfully i get more heavier snows as the winter rolls along.
