Minuscule chance for a white Christmas this year
Sing it with me now:
♫ It’s beginning to look a lot like Christmas
Everywhere you go
Take a look at all that rain
Grey skies and faces in pain
Fingers and toes are … yep, still numb
Only two pairs of gloves? That’s dumb!
Should have worn those wooly socks
It’s pitch dark by 15:00 o’clock
As the wind rips right through your clothing
I think I feel hyperthermia approaching … ♫
Yeah, Christmas is set to be another miserable weather affair this year – at least according to the national weather forecasters, DMI.
December is set to start off pretty much as described in the verse above and DMI statistics reveal that it’ll likely continue throughout the month.
At any rate, there is just a tiny chance of Denmark seeing a white Christmas – at least 90 percent of the country covered in a minimum of 0.5 cm of snow on Christmas Eve.
A Christmas miracle?
Since 1900, the country has enjoyed nationwide snowfall on Christmas a miserable nine times.
So, taking that into account, statistically there is just a 7.5 percent chance that it will occur this year.
The last time Denmark saw a white Christmas was in 2010. Before that it was 2009 – so two on the trot – 1995, 1981, 1965, 1956, 1938, 1923 and 1915.
