Dreaming of a White Christmas in Saint Cloud? Here are the Odds
2021 is a different year, and the Christmas holiday will be no exception, but what about the weather? Here's what the chances are of having a White Christmas this year in Central Minnesota.
Despite the warm and dry October and November we've been experiencing, this year's forecast calls for slightly above snowfall for the winter of 2021-2022.
Statistically, St. Cloud and the rest of Central Minnesota have a 76% to 90% chance on average of having a White Christmas.
Minnesota. Maine. Upstate New York. The Allegheny Mountains of Pennsylvania and West Virginia. Practically anywhere in Idaho. And of course, the Rockies or the Sierra Nevada Mountains. These are the parts of the Lower 48* where weather history suggests you want to be if you're looking for the best chance of a white Christmas.
As for the Central Minnesota forecast, there's nothing in the next week that looks like its going to get us there. Temperatures look to remain above normal, and precipitation appears scarce.
What had looked like a chance of snow of the southern half of snow on Friday & Saturday, now looks like it will miss us far to the south.
