White Christmas for Canada in 2009?

In 2008, all of Canada was treated to a white Christmas. It was the first nationwide white Christmas in nearly four decades.

With a snow advisory for Vancouver, BC this week, things may be looking up for a repeat in 2009. That is, only if it doesn't warm up too much. The forecast is calling for about 20 centimetres in BC's lower mainland (that's about 7 inches).
