Dreaming of a White Christmas in Boise? Chances Aren’t Good
Dreaming of a white Christmas in the Treasure Valley? You may want to start looking up scenes of snow falling softly on the ground outside a scenic window.
I didn't realize until I caught the weather that snow on Christmas Day in the Treasure Valley is actually kind of rare. Last year there were nine inches of snow on the ground on Christmas Day (not all of it fell on December 25th.) There hadn't been that much on the ground in over 30 years.
So with a similar La Nina weather pattern predicted for the Treasure Valley this winter, what are our chances of a white Christmas? Not so great. Two weeks out, we're looking at a 28% chance of snow on the ground and just a 14% of flakes flying on Christmas Day.
...then again we all know this is Idaho and if you give the weather five minutes, it'll totally change whatever it was doing.
But, if you're super bummed about the low chance of snow, you can always pop one of these up on your smart TV. That's what I've been doing to make the studio feel cozier every morning!
