White Christmas

This image is an interesting one as it shows us the different probabilities for
the different states when considering whether or not they will get a white Christmas.
This map tells us that the north , north-east and north-western regions have
the higher probabilities of having a white Christmas. Therefore , Maine ,
North Minnesota and Wisconsin in the north-east as well as Colorado , Idaho ,
Washington and Montana in the north-west are between 61 and >90 percent
likely to get snow at Christmas. The southern States such as Texas ,
Florida , Georgia , South Carolina , California and southern Arizona
have a less than 5 percent chance of snow at Christmas.
The northern states are closer to the Arctic Circle whilst the southern are closer to
the Equator , due to this these percentages are highly likely to be valid.
