What Is The Probability Of A White Christmas In NJ?
The National Oceanic and Atmospheric Association has collected the data to see just how likely it is for anyone in the US to have a "White Christmas".
NOAA created this graphic based on information from 1981-2010. The whiter your area, the more likely you'll have at least one inch of snow on December 25th.
On the site, you can zoom around to see specific areas. Here's what New Jersey looks like:
Bummer. Even in the northwestern parts of the state, the odds aren't that great for snow on Christmas.
Looking at the national map, there aren't that many surprises. No chance for snow across any of the Southeast, but plenty of snow in Minnesota/Michigan/the Dakotas/etc. I was kind of surprised that the Pacific Northwest had such a dark line running up the coast; looks like you have to go further inland to get some snow.
