Historically, a "white" Christmas (an inch or more of snow on the ground Christmas morning) occurs 53% of the time at Two Rivers, 60-70% of the time at Kewaunee and Manitowoc, 70-75% of the time in Green Bay and the Fox Valley, 85-90% in Wausau, and over 90% of the time in Rhinelander and far north-central Wisconsin. Lac Vieux Desert in Vilas County has nearly a 100% chance of a "white" Christmas.

Snow cover is lacking across much of central and east-central Wisconsin as of the 23rd, and chances are low for an inch of snow to fall before Christmas Day. There are much better chances of a "white" Christmas across northern Wisconsin due to recent snowfall and some additional snow on Christmas Eve.
