Pictured above is the snow plow (in French: Chasse-Neige) that belongs to the Chemin de Fer de Provence railroad that runs between Nice, France and Digne. It is parked quietly on the turntable in Annot (midway between the two cities) just waiting for the dispatcher to call a crew.
Same conditions in North America. Lots of railroad snow equipment just sitting and waiting on a quiet track waiting for a dispatcher to call a crew.
Cities and railroads are ready. But AccuWeather thinks no White Christmas.
the weather pattern is dashing the hopes of many for a white Christmas this year.
Due to the strong El Niño unfolding, many places that typically have a good chance of seeing snow on Christmas Day will miss out this holiday.
This includes the East Coast I-95 cities, where meteorologists say chances are slim.
“There’s just not going to be enough cold air to support accumulating snow,” AccuWeather Meteorologist Brett Anderson said.
