A white Christmas is possible in the least probable places

On average there is a 10 percent chance North Texas will have a white Christmas any given year according to historic weather records View Slideshow

A spokesperson for the Met Office clarified that the United Kingdom will be "entering a weekend of more unsettled weather which could bring wind and rain, and which may lead to a storm". We'll have hard freezes overnight with lows into the lower 20s and possibly teens. Previous year we had just enough to qualify.

The next year also had reasonable snow cover, but it was very sparse by the time you got to the Boston area. The models can change and that would impact what we see.

In the colder air Sunday light snow snow will develop ahead of a cold front and snow showers will be likely Christmas Day.

The latest weather forecast maps suggest several areas of the United Kingdom should prepare to enjoy a snowy Christmas day and Boxing Day. Well, "wish-casting" a weather forecast gets you only so far.

Spokesman for the organisation Grahame Madge said: "I think what we can say is that on Christmas Eve there is quite a lot of heavy rain in northern Britain and across Scotland and down into northern England".

High temperatures on Saturday could reach near 60 degrees in parts of the area.

The last time the United Kingdom experienced a White Christmas was in 2015 when some weather stations saw snowfall, but the last time that snow was reported lying on the ground was 2010. The snow looks to end in the predawn hours of Monday (Christmas Day), with sunshine returning, and temperatures warming into the 30's and low 40's during the afternoon.

Despite a few rounds of cold air earlier in the month, the month of December has been a mild one with much of Central Illinois experiencing temperatures that have been 3-5° above average through December 18th.

In Owatonna, which does lie south of that band, Keclik said the current forecast calls for about five inches of snow between Thursday and Friday.

This year, some models are saying there is a small chance in the least likely regions.

Written by Irving Berlin, the song's lyrics bring out a romanticized image of Christmases past, "just like the ones I used to know".
