Just once, I would like to see it snowing when I go to visit the National Christmas Tree at the White House. This year's tree is beautiful.

What a perfect image that would be.

Winter has been completely schizophrenic and upside-down here in the Twin Cities.

November was more like January with extremely cold temps and lots of snow. December has been abnormally warm (above freezing), with intermittent rain/drizzle/fog for several days in a row. Snow has entirely melted, and there are puddles and standing water all over the place. Looks like springtime in December...

I love spending Christmas in Western PA. Have you, by chance, ever been to Uniontown? Everybody decorates their houses with lights and there is usually a nice coating of snow on the ground. Very festive. IDK what there is to dislike.

I know. I've only ever seen one white Christmas here. Our winters suck.

Dry here in omaha for the most part. Temp has ranged from coldish to warm highs 35-60) with the exception of that bombogensis deal in November. Has rained the last few days however.

You can see grass, as the snow has been melting and the highs are going to be in the 40's-50's the next 2 or 3 days.

Most of North America is having a mild start to winter. That said, in my section of central MD, this may be an odd year where November will have more snow (I even went sledding on Thanksgiving morning!) and a colder lowest monthly temperature than December. The coldest it has been in December so far in Baltimore is 23 degrees following a November low of 18F, when typically the coldest temperature in December is somewhere in the mid-teens. It has been cloudier and a bit windier than normal in December, with no "clear" days recorded so far! No subfreezing highs so far this winter and over the next week, the coldest low is forecast to be a "balmy" 31F, and the pansies are still blooming and on Sunday I still saw some bugs. I hope we get a real cold snap that gives us a few days in the 20s like 2012-13 (a "weak" winter with the biggest snowfall actually occurring in the Spring), or we could be in for a looooong summer 2015. Unfortunately, the Pacific Ocean isn't helping matters and the polar vortex looks to be locked up in the Arctic for the next couple weeks, and that will mean that much of the Great Lakes will stay unfrozen. I can't really say though that it really screams "winter", but rather "wintumn" with some crisp days a bit cooler than autumn weather, but snow-free and ice-free (except for a small glaze that formed inside of a trash can after a rain and a few chilly nights).

A balmy 52 degrees here in SE Michigan right now, and the grass is still green in most places. Today feels like a typical day in late March, not like two days before Christmas. No snow anywhere, not a flake to be seen.

Lovin' it!

Unusually warm and wet. In the low/mid 60s during the day, which is about 15 above normal. Very little snow, the local ski resort opened for 2 days and then had to shut down because warm rain melted the snow. We've had 2 frosts and 1 freeze warning so far, which is also unusual, the average low in December is right at the 30 mark, which means freezes and frosts are pretty common.

Reservoirs are full now, but it is snow pack that prevents drought in the late spring and summer. This is about 3 years of warmer than average, with the exception of an extremely cold storm last February.

Currently 32 with flurries earlier today, now clear. Probably won't have a "white" Christmas per se, but should still have snow on grassy areas by Thursday. Happy Holidays to all!
