Without actually living in Washington D.C. for a few years, it's easy to think of a White Christmas blanketing the nation's capital with a healthy layer of snow for Santa's sled, but cold hard numbers just aren't warm to the chances. With a 1 in 50 chance of getting 4” of snow by Christmas, things are looking awfully gray on the idea of a White Washington Christmas.
It’s that time again, when children and adults alike dream for an iconic White Christmas. When it comes to history, we’re certainly fighting an uphill battle across the Washington, D.C. region. The I-95 corridor more or less marks the 10% chance area, with odds increasing to about 25% of the time for our far northwest suburbs.
Not until you get well into elevation, well to the north and west, does a White Christmas become more of a regular occurrence.
