Dreaming of a White Christmas in Wisconsin?

The persistent cold weather pattern and occasional periods of snow guarantees a white Christmas across northeast and north-central Wisconsin this year.

Historically, a "white" Christmas (an inch or more of snow on the ground Christmas morning) occurs about 65-75% of the time in Green Bay and the Fox Valley and over 90% of the time in Rhinelander and far north-central Wisconsin.
