Temperature, Precipitation, and Snow records since December 1949
*Snow on the ground measurements are not available from 1997- 2009.  It is very likely that 2002 was also a White Christmas based on the snowfall that occurred on 12/24/2002.
**The Chirstmas Eve Winter Storm in 2009 produced 2"-6" across northwest Arkansas. While an official 6am snow depth reading was not available, there was likely at least 1" of snow on the ground Christmas morning in Fayetteville.
