CLEVELAND - Will we have a White Christmas this year? That's the age-old question everyone likes to ask right before the big holiday.

The Probability of a White Christmas map, based on the most recent 1981–2010 climate normals, shows the climatological probability (in percent) that a snow depth of at least one inch will be observed on December 25. The highest probabilities are in northern and mountainous areas of the country.

The actual conditions this year may vary widely from these probabilities because the weather patterns present will determine the snow on the ground or snowfall on Christmas day. These probabilities are useful as a guide only to show where snow on the ground is more likely.
