Many northern U.S. residents assume they may see snow for Christmas however, it seems to be changing each year. Could global warming be making white Christmases a thing of the past? Valerie Smock has the details.
If you like in the northern tier of the United States, you probably expect to wake up Christmas morning with snow on the ground. You may even see a fresh blanket of powder on your front lawn. As the years go on, a white Christmas may be a thing of the past.
The NCDC Historical Chances of a White Christmas show a good portion of the country with the possibility of having one. However, that data is more than 50 years old. Are you wondering why Mother Nature is holding the snow hostage?
Climate and meteorology experts explain the change in climate - or global warming - may be the reason. The odds of having a white Christmas in the northern hemisphere has diminished in the last century due to a rise in global temperatures since 1900. The chance will likely decrease more by 2100 with odds of less than 5 percent.
