Will We Have a White Christmas?
Long before Bing Crosby sang "White Christmas" for the first time in 1942, people dreamed of having snow on the ground for Christmas.
According to inquirer.com, the Philadelphia metro area has only had a white Christmas 6 times over the last 60 years. And the last time significant snow was on the ground on December 25th was in 2009.
If you've been dreaming of a white Christmas this year, it looks like you're going to be out of luck. We've checked out several forecasts and none of them are predicting snow for our area on Dec. 24 or 25.
The National Weather Service forecast is calling for mostly sunny skies for the Trenton area on Christmas Eve and Christmas Day. The high temps will be in the mid to upper 40's and the lows will be in the low 30's.
The AccuWeather forecast looks almost identical to the NWS forecast.
And finally, Weather.com's forecast differs slightly from the NWS and AccuWeather forecasts. Weather.com is calling for partly cloudy skies on the 24th and 25th with highs both days in the low 50's.
By the way, AccuWeather is predicting Christmas snow for "the Upper Midwest, the Dakotas, Minnesota, northern Wisconsin, northern Michigan and northern and central New England "
