While climatology generally says the local area can expect a white Christmas (an inch of snow on the ground or falling that day) about 60-80% of the time, Mother Nature may not always cooperate.

Recent snowfall with cold weather moving in shows a lot of promise for holding onto the current snow cover - enough for a White Christmas. In addition, there will still be some light snow chances heading into the holiday, which could provide some additional, light snow cover.  

Unlike last year, the chances for a White Christmas - at least for most of the area - are looking likely.
