STATE – Don’t count on a white Christmas this year – New Jersey has less than a 25 percent chance of seeing snow on Dec. 25, according to AccuWeather.com.
The weather service defines a “white Christmas” as a snow depth of an inch or more on Christmas Day.
Minneapolis, Minn., Green Bay, Wis., Buffalo, N.Y., and Burlington, Vt., are among the cities in the U.S. that have the highest chance for a white Christmas.
“It tends to stay colder across the northern tier during the day and night, so when snow falls, it’s less likely to melt,” AccuWeather Expert Senior Meteorologist Alex Sosnowski said.
For many, snow is part of the Christmas tradition. Irving Berlin’s song “White Christmas,” sung by Bing Crosby, is the best selling single of all time, selling an estimated 50 million copies worldwide.
