History Suggests Rockford Could Be In For A White Christmas
The temperature in the past few days have finally made fall feel a bit more like fall.
And with Thanksgiving knocking on the door this Thursday, it's officially safe to start thinking about Christmas.
Besides the day itself, people in the area always seem to wonder if they will see any snow on Christmas Day.
Tyler Sebree from WTVO took a closer to see if he can get us some real answers.
"Going all the way back to 1905, Rockford has seen 65 Christmas Day's with no snow, 21 Christmas Day's with a trace of snow, and 21 Christmas's with more than a trace of snow. Overall, we have had more days without snow than with snow."
Most Rockfordians would agree, a trace of snow is good enough for us to consider December 25th a White Christmas.
In case you're wondering, the most snow that has ever fallen on Christmas Day in Rockford "occurred in 1909, when the city recorded 6"."
