Residents of Bel Air may be seeing some snow on Christmas Day of 2013.

A white Christmas is the event where it snows on Christmas Day. It is a very rare occurrence, but when it does happen, it is always a beautiful sight. Last year, the east coast was hit with snowfall on December 24th and December 26th– the days before and after Christmas. Will the snow fall on Christmas Day this year?

“I hope so,” said senior Nick Stafford. “For a traditional Christmas, there should be snow.”

If it were to snow on Christmas, it would be the first time in 3-4 years, according to Stafford. It would also help create new memories of playing in the snow, after opening Christmas presents.

“I enjoy snowball fights,” said senior Colin Leary. “Lots of them.”

According to Stafford and Leary, there is nothing bad about having a white Christmas.

“It puts you in a Christmas kind of mood,” said Stafford.

“If it’s going to be cold, then make it snow no matter what,” said Leary.

Unfortunately, a white Christmas is unlikely to happen this year. According to The Weather Channel, it will be partly cloudy that day with is a 0% chance of precipitation. Even if there is a chance of precipitation, it would only be rain because the high is supposed to reach 38°F.

This does not mean it will snow again on Christmas Day. It is too early to tell, but next year could have a white Christmas. For now, residents will have to just wait.
