Keep sleeping with those silver spoons under your pillow because snow is on the way! Just in time for Christmas, too! Finally, the fabled White Christmas is upon us.
CT Post reports that Connecticut’s probability of seeing snow on Christmas is now 75 percent! Meaning, 2017 may finally buck the 15-year dry spell.
The National Weather Service maintained its prediction that rain will strike the area starting Christmas Eve. But, this time, a low pressure system might strike us at just the right time to produce the white stuff.
All eyes are on the storm, hoping it will hug “benchmark” off the New England coast. Meaning, if it tracks east of the “benchmark” (40 degree latitude and 70 degree longitude,) we’ll see snow. If it moves inside or west, we’ll either see a wintry mix of rain and snow… or just rain.
Which, as someone who loves snow, I sincerely hope that’s not the case. I WANT snow… no, DEMAND snow.
This 15-year drought of the very substance that makes Christmas so magical must end!
And, if you live in mid to upper Connecticut, chances of having snow on Christmas day is currently at 72 percent. The shoreline, however, that’s where the bad news comes in.
As it currently stands, the chance of a White Christmas on the shoreline is at 21 percent. Ugh.
Thankfully, the NWS says this forecast isn’t set in stone just yet and will change as we creep closer to Christmas. So, with that in mind, you might want to dust off the shovels just to be safe.
Because I’m praying super hard for a snowy Christmas Day. It’s time.
