A sliver of the state along Lake Champlain, including Burllington, shows a 61 to 75 percent chance of snow. For more information, visit the NCDC Web site.

Cornell University’s Northeast Regional Climate Center puts out a white Christmas probability list annually. In 2002, the examination of historical records and extrapolation of possibilities found that if there is an inch or more of snow on the ground December 18, the chances for a white Christmas greatly improve for most areas. Burlington ordinarily has a 69 percent chance, improved to 80 percent based on the snow on the ground December 18. Caribou, Maine, the snowiest populated town in the Northeast, topped the 2002 list with a 94 percent chance of a white Christmas.
