- Average Chance: probability of a white Christmas (snowcover of 2 cm or more on Christmas morning at 7 a.m.) for full period of 55 years
- Chance Now: probability for children today based on period (1991-2009)
- Chance Before: probability for parents today when they were children (1964-1982)
- Perfect Christmas: probability of a white Christmas morning and snow in the air on Christmas day, i.e., a measurable snowfall on Christmas (1955-2007)
- Snowdepth Now: average depth of snowcover (cm) on Christmas morning from 1991 to 2009
