Do you wonder if our area will have a White Christmas this year? Officially, the definition of a White Christmas is any December 25 which has recorded 1″ or more of snow on the ground by 6 a.m. in the morning. Please note that this definition does NOT include snowfall totals that fall after six in the morning, for whatever reason.
In the Elgin Illinois area our chance of having a White Christmas is about 35% historically. Just to the east at O’Hare airport the percentage increases to nearly 40%. South of us in Aurora the chance is about 43%. These numbers are based on the National Weather Services observations of just a 30 year period between 1981 and 2010.
Whatever Christmas Day has in store for the residents of Elgin, Bartlett, Streamwood, Dundee, etc. we hope that this will be the best Christmas you and your family have ever experienced. We here at Tom’s Plumbing Inc. will stand by to serve all of your plumbing emergencies during the holiday season. Merry Christmas and Happy New Year from Tom’s Plumbing Inc.
