There are predictions that the impending ‘bomb cyclone’ set to cause canceled flights and travel delays from Logan and on I-95, might also give Boston higher chances of a white Christmas, albeit only a 19% chance.
The last time Boston saw a white Christmas was in 2009 according to a weather.com report. Boston marked 4 inches of snow on Christmas day 13 years ago. In the last two decades, Boston has only experienced two white Christmases, the additional one the year prior in 2008.
With December temperature averages increasing over the past twenty years, it’s no wonder Boston’s chances of a White Christmas are dwindling.
Rain and wind are expected Thursday night into Friday, December 23. And December 24 and 25 will be dry and in the high 20s only. The abundant rainfall from Thursday and Friday may freeze over the weekend and create a frosting in Boston and surrounding areas. It’s the closest likelihood of a white Christmas for Boston this year, but you never know-if you don’t like the weather just wait a minute.
