Many of us are dreaming of a white Christmas, but what are the chances that we'll get (more) snow for the holiday?
We were lucky to get some snow over the weekend, which didn't quite meet the loose definition of a "White Christmas," which is classified as having at least 1 inch of snowfall, according to U.S. White Christmas Probabilities.
According to the Minnesota Department of Natural Resources, a white Christmas happens about 72% of the time in the Twin Cities. Looking at data recorded from 1899 to 2017, there were only 34 years that saw zero or trace snowfall on Christmas.
The Weather Channel says the Twin Cities won't see snow until Thursday and Friday, but that can always change. I looked at the forecast before we got snow on Saturday, and was surprised that it had snowed when my iPhone said it wasn't going to.
