Good evening! I hope everyone had a wonderful Thanksgiving and you were able to be thankful for something in your life. I know I was!I was able to spend the day with my whole family something that happens about once a year. On top of it all I received some of my favorite weather- sunny and warm! Now that Thanksgiving is over many of begin our preperations for Christmas. I bet some people even checked off a few people on their Christmas lists today with all the sales. I was reading this article while in the airport today and really got a kick out of it. It is about why everyone relatesChristmas to snow and why people obsesses about having a white Christmas.
Many people say that we dream about a white Christmas because it is drilled into our heads when we see images of Santa at the North Pole or because of stories and songs. One climatologist says if we stopped singing and writing about it would things change? An interesting thought.
For us here in Wausau there is a 93% chance we will have 1 inch of snow on the ground. There is a 54% chance that we will have 5 inches and a 25% that we will have 10 inches or more.

Will you be dreaming of a White Christmas?
Have a great night and Happy Thanksgiving! Meteorologist Kristen Connolly
