If you're looking forward to a white Christmas, you'll have to beat the weather record odds.

West Virginia gets at least an inch of snow on Christmas about two out of every 10 years, according to Ken Batty of the National Weather Service.

This week's forecast look for warming temperatures and rain on Christmas Day. The white Christmas rate is even lower in the eastern panhandle, once every 10 years. In a few towns at elevations above 3,000 feet, the odds are better than even.
