Forecasters: We Won’t Have a White Christmas After All
Last week, we told you that based on history, there was about a 10% chance that we'd see a "White Christmas" in Mercer County, but now that we are close enough to see an actual forecast for Dec. 25, we can pretty much guarantee that no snow will fall on Christmas.
According to weather.com, we may get precipitation on Christmas Eve, but temperatures should be well above freezing. So it'll be rain, of course.
The current forecast for Christmas Day calls for partly cloudy skies with highs in the low 40's.
In fact, most of the mid-Atlantic and northeast portions of the United States will miss out on snow on Christmas. Even places like the Poconos should be free of any precipitation on Christmas. The same goes for traditional snowy cities like Buffalo and Syracuse.
Forecasters say that the areas of the U.S. that are likely to get one or more inches of snow on Christmas are "in the northern and central Rockies...northern Wisconsin, northern Minnesota and the Upper Peninsula of Michigan."
So we'll have to keep dreaming of that "White Christmas." But at least it won't be in the 60s and 70s like it was a few years ago, right?
