It rarely snows in Paris. Last year was a major exception.

However, it looks like this year might be a major exception as well. Even though no snow is forecast in Paris at the moment, it is quite cold and the areas where it is snowing are not far away.

We landed last March 12 to snow. Talk about surprised. Even though it was beautiful to see snow (we are from southeast Texas), we were ready for it to melt after a little while. It is too hard to walk around in it.

I have seen snow on the ground in Paris in January. When I was there it was already muddy and slushy, but it looked like it had been a fairly heavy snow fall.

Snow rarely happens before winter (I said rarely, not never...) and winter starts on the 22nd of December. 4 years ago there was snow in mid-December in Paris (enough to disrupt flights at CDG), but I really would be surprised if it snowed in November.

In November 2010 we were at the Eiffel Tower and it was snowing and glorious -- talk about memories!

there has never been snow in the several Novembers we have spent in Paris -- but weather all over the world is changing so you never know. The Christmases we have spent in Paris have also seen little snow -- a flurry or two but more rain than snow.

Current temperatures are lower than the seasonal norms, but they are not yet forecasting snow here.
