BOSTON (WBZ NewsRadio) — A white Christmas could be in the works in Greater Boston for the first time in years. The city hasn't had a white Christmas since 2009, according to WBZ-TV Meteorologist Eric Fisher. In general, Boston has ranged between a 25-40% chance of having a white Christmas since 1991, which is defined as at least an inch of snow on the ground as of December 25.
Snow is set to overspread the region overnight on Thursday into Christmas Eve, with another, lesser chance for snow headed into Christmas Day. The snowfall totals will be minimal, but the city could see an inch on the ground between the two events. All parts of the state look to have a decent chance of seeing at least a little snow, with greater chances inland and west of the city.
Christmas Day looks to be dreary in general, with another chance at snow and rain during the day.
