Probability of a White Christmas

Probability of a White Christmas

Even those who despise snow can tolerate a white Christmas. There's something about snow on Christmas morning that adds to a perfect day.

Below are probabilities of a white Christmas. Three locations for Newfoundland and Labrador are on the list

  • St. John's 65%

  • Goose Bay 95%

  • Stephenville 70%

These numbers are based on historical averages, not the forecast.

A white Christmas means there is snow on the ground of 2 cm or more on Christmas morning at 7 a.m.

The percentages above are from Environment and Climate Change Canada which has analyzed 63 years of weather records and calculated the probability of having a white snow-covered Christmas Day.
