Is everyone dreaming of a white Christmas? I know lots of friends and family that are waiting patiently for a snowy Christmas day.

People are crossing their fingers and hoping for a white Christmas. We'll have the matching pajamas and the warm blankets for the hopes that Santa and the reindeer will leave prints in the snow as we wake up on Christmas day.

Do you remember the warm Christmas we had several years ago, I believe that was in 2017. We were wearing shorts on Christmas day. It might just be another warm Christmas.

I especially love when stores, mainly jewelry stores, give huge discounts when there's a white Christmas. Brilliant, brilliant marketing and it gets us all excited in the hopes for snow on Christmas day.

According to nj.com, 2009 was the last time we saw snow an inch or more on Christmas day. Do you remember that whopping snowstorm? The snow was falling a couple of days before Christmas and we had a lot of snow. I couldn't even make it to work because the roads weren't plowed. In 2012, there was some snow on the ground in different parts of the state, but not us here in Ocean County.

So, the big question - Will we have a white Christmas this year in Ocean County? As many of you know it is very rare to get snow on Christmas day. When other areas of New Jersey might be getting a couple of inches, the Jersey Shore isn't and Ocean County is not getting snow. It's very rare that we will have a white Christmas, but it's something we all hope for.

Over the last five to ten years, if any snow...less than an inch for beautiful Ocean County. This year we will wait patiently. You can always follow 92.7 WOBM's Meteorologist Dan Zarrow's Weather Blog.

For now, I'm crossing my fingers for a nice two inches on Christmas day.
