Will there be a white Christmas?

In a few days you can check our weather pages to see if Dec. 25 will be white or not, but that's a long range forecast and we all know what can happen in the long term.

For those who can't wait, Environment Canada has analyzed 57 years of weather records for 39 major centres across Canada, and calculated the probability of having a white snow-covered Christmas Day.
