Will We Get A White Christmas This Year?

What are the chances that Connecticut will see a white Christmas?


Christmas morning becomes even more magical for our children if we get to see snow falling and a nice coating of white on all the trees and grass.  So the big question is will we get a white Christmas this year?  The answer is leaning towards yes!  If you are inland the chances are much higher that you'll see about an inch or two of snow Christmas morning.

For the shoreline it will depend on the temperatures.  If the temps are above freezing the snow won't stick and the white Christmas will be a no show.  The shoreline may also see rain mixing in with the snow in the morning which would also limit the accumulation.  

A low pressure system will pass to our south and Connecticut should be north of the rain/snow line.  If the low passes too far south, then we won't see much of anything.

I wonder if Santa can make it snow.  Hey Santa, if you're reading this (because we know you love the North Haven Patch) can you make it snow Christmas morning?

Please feel free to tweet me some photos on Christmas if you received snow in your locale.  My twitter handle is @ctweathergeek.

...Merry Christmas! Well, I guess we received just enough snow to put a little "Sparkle in our Christmas Spirit." I've added a few photos above, taken last night around midnight. But I've heard there may be a possibility of some more on the way in the next few days?

Nice pics! A little snow (for us) tomorrow night. Big storm next weekend!
