Reflecting on A White Christmas in South Texas from back in 2006! (credit: This Day in Weather History)
DISCUSSIONS: As far as the recorded history of White Christmas events is concerned, here is one of the more impressive white christmas occurrences of all-time. Back on December 24th, 2004 an extremely rare snowstorm impacted southeastern Texas which made for an incredibly unprecedented situation. This event was particularly impactful based on the fact that even during the Winter-time months, there is often little to no snowfall typically observed in this part of the United States. More specifically, upon the conclusion of the accumulating snowfall during this winter storm which delivered a White Chirstmas to parts of South Texas, Corpus Christi International Airport officially measured 4.4 inches from this event. This was their second white Christmas ever recorded in Corpus Christi, Texas. The other white Christmas occurred in 1918 when 0.1 inches was reported.
