Fort Wayne’s “White Christmas” potential


FORT WAYNE, Ind. (WANE) – The National Weather Service defines a “White Christmas” as one that has, at least, 1″ of snow on the ground at 7 am on December 25.

In Fort Wayne, for all years dating back to 1901, and that we have records for, 45 Christmases have met the 1″ bar and that equates to 39%.

Logically, it should come as no surprise, with colder weather occurring as you head north, your chance of experiencing a “White Christmas” statistically increases. There’s also an increased chance of seeing a snowy Christmas if you head to the higher elevations of the Rocky Mountains out west.

Here’s a complete chart of Fort Wayne’s Christmas weather statistics, as compiled by the National Weather Service Northern Indiana Office.
