It's all an estimation of course, but the data is based primarily upon "1981-2010 Climate Normals," which are "...NCEI's latest three-decade averages of climatological variables, including temperature and precipitation."
So where are you most likely to get some snowfalls, according to these scientists and their precious data?
"Minnesota. Maine. Upstate New York. The Allegheny Mountains of Pennsylvania and West Virginia. Practically anywhere in Idaho. And of course, the Rockies or the Sierra Nevada Mountains."
Now, if you'll excuse me, I need to call my travel agent and tell her I need accommodations "practically anywhere in Idaho" for my own white Christmas enjoyment. Oh, and Florida: You're screwed (per usual).
