The First Snow Map
If you are already bored with Smoky Mountain's Fall Foliage Prediction Map and are now waiting with anticipation for the first of the winter snow then you need to check out NOAA's First Snow Map.
Using historical weather data the First Snow Map provides you with information on when can expect to see the first winter snow in your area. The map uses climate records to show when the chances of snow at your location rise to at least 50%.
To discover when the chances of your first snow rise to 50% or above just zoom in on your location. The circular markers on the map are color-coded to show the historic date by which there’s a 50% chance of snow. If you want the exact date you just need to click on the closest marker to your location.
Disclaimer: the climate can be unpredictable.
