A white Thanksgiving is likely for much of the Northeast.
Snowfall probabilities based on 1988-2017.
Historical probabilities, based on the last 30 years, show us that Anchorage, AK is the most likely to have a white Thanksgiving with an 83% probability to have snow on the ground. Northeast cities have a 0% (Mid-Atlantic) to 43% (Caribou, ME) chance of a white Thanksgiving.
But a look at a snow map and out the window tell us the odds are higher! Late last week an early-winter storm brought measurable snow to most of the Northeast, which has lingered due to colder-than-normal temperatures.
