Who is Dreaming of a White Xmas?

If you are dreaming of a white Christmas this year then you should check out this interactive map from NOAA. NOAA's White Christmas map uses historical weather data to provide a prediction of the chance of experiencing at least 1 inch of snow at your location on Christmas Day. The whiter the map at your location then the more chance there is of having a white Christmas.

If you want to know when the first snow of the year is most likely to fall then you can refer instead to NOAA's handy interactive First Snow Map, which provides a nationwide guide to when you can expect to get the first snow of the winter. The map shows the date at your location when the chance of snow is at least 50%, based on historical weather records. 

AccuWeather has also released its annual predictions of the chances of seeing snow at Christmas. The AccuWeather White Christmas Forecast map is calculated on a very similar basis to NOAA's forecast. The AccuWeather map shows the historical probability of a location seeing at least 1 inch of snow on the ground at Christmas based on 30-year's of weather data.
