Nothing says Christmas quite like a blanket of snow on the ground, but what's your chance of seeing a white Christmas? Skiers headed to the high country can bet on at least being able to make a snowman (even if the white stuff isn't falling from the sky), but if you can't make it to the mountains this Christmas, check out this map from NOAA. Using data from 1981 to 2010, it measures the historic probability of there being at least one inch on the ground on Christmas Day. And even if your town doesn't have a huge probability of snow (we're looking at you, southern U.S.), remember that freak storms can always happen, so keep those snow dances going!
