Are you dreaming of a white Christmas? Well, don’t get your hopes up too high. To help confirm your wishes NOAA developed this fun map last year showing the probability past on historical data of places having more than one inch of the white stuff on December 25
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.
