If you're dreaming of a White Christmas, you'll have to travel far from North Carolina. The chance for a white Christmas is typically less than 5% in our part of the country and that will not be any different this year. According to date from the State Climate Office there has not been more than a trace of snow at RDU since 1948. In 1966, there was an inch of snow on the ground Christmas Day from a previous snowfall. The coldest Christmas Day was in 1983 when the high only reached 19. The low that day was 4.
Since 1948, Fayetteville has also never recorded more than a trace of snow on Christmas Day. However, on Christmas Day 1989 there was 2 inches of snow on the ground in Fayetteville. That snow was left over from a winter storm that dumped over a foot of snow along the southeast coast of North Carolina.
