Yeah let's start off with an Average map (1960-1990):



If folks want to add the GFS Snow Cover map from Pro.AccuWeather.com to this thread every 6 hours from Dec. 10-25 feel free... I am too lazy to do it this year.

IMPORTANT: THIS THREAD WILL BE MOVED INTO U.S. CURRENT WEATHER ON 12/10

I heard there was a white Christmas here... once....

My last white Christmas was in MD in '02. I was pregnant with my oldest that year, and it was awesome. That was the same winter we had the legendary President's Day storm (Feb '03) the day after I brought my baby home from the hospital huh.gif

We've never had a white Christmas here in the Napa Valley of California but we have come close to having one occur on several occasions, usually the first week of JAN is the closest we've ever come to having a White Christmas, happened several times. Not in recent history though, during those times it was hardly a winter wonderland though with only trace amounts of snowfall. Basically our chance is effectively 0 for a white Christmas.

63% IS THE NUMBER TO BEAT.

And since normally, only about 25% of the nation has 1 inch of snow on the ground Christmas day, that is a heck of a number. I will tell you what... the over under, since that is such a huge forecast is 55%. I think more than 55% of the nation is covered with snow on Christmas day this year.. It might be close though, since the pattern causing all this may be breaking Christmas week.

Without knowing what the usual or average percentage of country with snow cover by christmas I am going to say that only 27% will be snow covered...watch...I'm basing this on a rapid meltdown after storms.


--------------------
Snow Totals Per Season:

2007-08: 21"
2008-09: 41"
2009-10: 39.5"
2010-11: 71.5"
2011-12: 14"
2012-13: 46.5"
2013-14: 56.75"

Average(BDR since 1950) = 27.75"

I remember back in December 1996, there was about 3" of snow in Athens, GA about a week before Christmas. It was cool seeing everything covered in snow and all the houses lit up with Christmas lights. Unfortunately, the snow had all melted away by Christmas, but that's OK. Christmas in Georgia is typically mild during the day and then chilly once the sun goes down. Feels Christmas-y enough.

I had a nice 55 degrees and rain last Christmas, which then turned to snow Christmas night. I got 11" of snow on the 26th, however, from a backside blizzard surprise.

The CFS forecasted a nice storm on Thanksgiving for the MW/OV a while back. Let's see if it can follow suit with Christmas.

Let's try to put discussion of who/where will receive a White Christmas in the U.S. in this thread, though we should keep in-depth discussion of individual storms in their respective threads.

For the record, this is what AccuWeather predicted on December 3rd...

I have seen a new video with joe b and he is thinking that snow line probably will be farther south.
