While Vancouver offers a smorgasbord of holiday events, the city isn't likely to see snow on Christmas Day.
According to The Weather Network, the south coast of B.C. has the lowest chance of seeing a white Christmas across Canada. However, the forecast notes that there will be an abundance of snow on the mountains next week, which will be a boon for local ski resorts.
"At this point, it looks unlikely that Vancouver or Victoria will have snow for Christmas," reads the report. "But one shouldn’t have to drive too far into the mountains to find snow."
The Weather Network adds that it will continue to monitor storm tracks and temperatures later this week to see if snow levels can drop closer to sea level. However, they hint that it would take, "the potential for a Christmas miracle" to bring snow to Vancouver.
Historically, Environment Canada notes that Vancouver only has a 10 per cent chance of seeing snow based on snowfall amounts from 1955-2017.
There’s no denying that seeing snowfall on the big day can add to the magic of the holidays. Waking up to a winter wonderland with snowflakes falling can make the festive affair sparkle, but it isn't always preferable to travel extremely far north to guarantee that it will happen.
That's where theWhite Christmas Calculator comes in — it suggests the nearest city with a bigger chance of snowfall on the big day.
