Christmas Weather

Anyone besides Denver going to have a white Christmas? Forecast here is for 76 degrees and rain. "I'm dreaming of a wet Christmas".

They are calling for possibility of snow Christmas night, rain Christmas eve and day. It rained all day yesterday - 1st rain in 2-3 weeks - we really needed the rain, especially the woodlands.

In southeastern PA they're calling for rain Christmas evening with a snow shower early Tuesday morning. Today it's in the 60's and wet.

It's raining right now in south coast Oregon and they're calling for rain and fifties for days to come. That's OK. I moved here partly because I wanted precipitation that removes itself. No more shoveling or scraping ice.

Oh yeah....it's gonna snow here in California. It's gonna be 73 on Christmas day. Would be nice to have 1 day of a snow miracle on my driveway. Even if I had to scrape around or be stuck 1 day.

We got kind of an icy snow last night, so the ground is sort of white. The way I figure it, summer's only six months away.

Here in Napanee Ontario we're forecast to have a hi of 41F with cloud cover on the 25th.
That's about as warm as I've ever seen a Christmas day.
We saw about 2" of snow cover the ground about two weeks ago, but that's long since disappeared.
At this rate, we're going to lose our reputation of being "The Great White North"!

Hmm. Should have looked outside before my last post. Snow's all gone, back to brown grass.

Do any of your areas seem to be getting warmer over the years? When I first moved to Colorado, twenty six years ago, you could ride a snow mobile across most of the state without hitting a fence post. There were folks in my area who made a handsome living in the winter plowing snow and worked like mad all winter. A white Christmas was a given, and minus thirty was not all that unusual. Now, the snow plowers barely pay for their equipment, many of the winter activities that used to be enjoyed are not even done anymore, and a white Christmas often doesn't happen.

Typical white xmas here. I'd post a picture of my yard but its too much effort to go outside to take a picture. Instead here's a link to a house that just came up for sale yesterday so its a recent picture.

Hey Smoke - Just talked to some friends in Evergreen. They got 4'.

Here in Southern New England it's going to be in the mid 50' about 15* above normal. I got no problem with that becasue it costs $65 to get my driveway plowed.

Christmas Weather

Finally got some snow - almost 1", but it is going fast with a lot of grass peeking through. Nothing on streets or sidewalks.

It may last through Christmas since it will below freezing for tonight anyway.

We've had warmer than normal winters here every year since 98/99. I don't think this is a permanent trend, though I'm not going to complain if it is.

" I don't think this is a permanent trend, though I'm not going to complain if it is."

I agree. It's 10 AM and 44*, quite a bit above normal. The grass is still green and I've got a half dozen deer in my yard taking advantage of it.

If this is due to global warming - bring it on.

Used to live in western WA and I remember it raining every day in the winter. Don't remember ever having any snow. I would assume Vancouver weather would be similar?

Pretty much...but had a good dumping of snow a couple of weeks ago after a couple of weeks of pretty steady rain....Then water warnings to boil all consumable water...for like, 3 weeks. Then the winds came...fallen trees, power outages, no heat....(but we have 3 gas fireplaces...phew). We've had some pretty lousy weather here of late...!

Well it was overcast, cool and rainy. Had a really nasty line of storms move through the area mid-day Christmas Day. We were doing 40 mph on I75 through a downpour around noon trying to get to Gma's house. Even had a tornado rip through a neighboring county and took out a bunch of homes, no fatalities tho.

Our Christmas snow finally showed up early this morning. Almost enough to cover the cars and the grass - nothing on the roads.

Yeah we did alright, as someone else said we got 3-4' here in Evergreen (stone's throw from Conifer) Colorado. Oh and look! Ma Nature may be dumping on us again, still up in the air. Texans drove up in last week's storm and didn't want to stick around for tomorrow's potential blizzard... wonder why?

LOgcabin - We have good friends in Evergreen and visit out there every year. My daughter and her family are there now on a ski trip. What a great place to live. Denver and the big city life on one side and the Awesome rockies on the other.
