Bundle up and ready those shovels, Santa may be bringing more than presents from the North Pole this year.
According to WTNH’s Storm Team 8, chances that Connecticut will see snow on the ground on Christmas Day is very likely! This is welcome news considering that for the past few years, Connecticut has experienced nearly tropical-like weather for the holidays. I think the majority is kinda ready to see those flakes falling on the 24th.
So, Storm Team 8 is running the models and trying to predict where and how much snow will fall in parts of the state around Christmas. Good news for all you up north, it is very likely Santa will be landing on a white roof this year. Those in Lichfield County have a 90 percent chance of seeing about an inch of snow on the ground when it’s time to open the presents. Tolland and Windham counties have about a 50/50 chance of seeing white stuff on the ground.
As for those on the shoreline, things aren’t looking too favorable. Still, the likelihood of seeing a white Christmas is better than the past two years COMBINED. As it stands right now, shoreline counties have a 1 in 5 chance of having a white instead of brown Christmas.
Storm Team 8 says the model is still in the very early stages of predicting weather patterns considering it’s barely December. They say the model will become more accurate as we slowly creep closer to Christmas.
