The last "White Christmas" occurred in 2000. The snow began falling shortly before midnight Christmas Eve, with only trace amounts reported through the morning hours.  The snow began to pick up during the afternoon hours and ended shortly before midnight, with a total snowfall of 1.8 inches.  The next previous "White Christmas" occurred in 1987 when  there was one inch of snow on the ground at 5 am, and a record total of 5.1 inches falling for the day.  The last time before that was in 1976.  There was one inch of snow on the ground that morning, with an additional 0.6 inches falling that day.  Since 1888, there has been only two occasions in which snow has fallen on two consecutive Christmas: 1911/1912 and 1941/1942.

                                                           Snowfall records are in inches, from 1888 to the present.
                                                           Snow on the ground is at 5 am, from 1948 to the present.

Current through 2013.
