With a call for possible snow later in the week, it made me wonder: how often does Albuquerque get a white Christmas? With an average annual snowfall of 11 inches, what are the chances we will get snow at all? Eleven inches doesn't seem like...a lot.
This must be the downside of living in the desert. We get the seasons, yes, and we have awesome warm days and plenty of sun, but what about that picturesque white Christmas? How often does it come? I did a little research and was surprised to find Albuquerque isn't without its share. Some of us still remember that big snowstorm six years ago when we had more than 16 inches of snow. Was it over Christmas or not? Find out, along with a list of Albuquerque's white Christmas stats.
