As we all (likely) know, the United States of America (USA) is made up of 50 states. Of those 50 states, only 10 of them are known for their snow, with Alaska and New Hampshire being dubbed the snowiest states. Despite this, it is not uncommon for snow to fall on conventionally sunny states in more mountainous regions, such as the Sierra Nevada Mountain Ranges in California. Texas, Florida, and even some spots in Arizona are no strangers to the white layers that cover up all types of terrain every winter.
Unfortunately, a white Christmas seems to only be a dream for a certain few, since states like Connecticut have not experienced their usual amount of snow in the last three years. This makes us question whether Connecticut will see snow by the time Christmas rolls around the corner this year.
One’s chances of seeing snow depends on their whereabouts. Some areas of the country have a 90% chance of experiencing snow. On the other hand, the closer you are to the shoreline in Connecticut, the lower your chances of seeing snow, with the probability following as low as 20%. However, there’s still enough of a chance to hold onto some hope, since anything can happen around the holidays.
And that was the weather. Happy holidays! As Bing Crosby once said, may all your Christmases be white.
