Snow in Florida: Tallahassee sees first significant snow since 1989

Snow in Florida: Tallahassee sees first significant snow since 1989

Florida has not only seen freezing temperatures but actual snow as of Wednesday morning. The weather is believed to have been caused by the storm system known as the bomb cyclone, which is gearing up to hit cities across the entire east coast from today through the weekend.

Officials issued storm warnings for parts of Florida and Georgia, the eastern Carolinas, southeast Virginia and the cities of Savannah, Charleston, Myrtle Beach, Wilmington and Norfolk.

A winter storm warning extended from the Gulf Coast in Floridas "Big Bend" region all the way up the Atlantic coast.

"You can go a generation here and not see snow", Jeff Fournier, a National Weather Service meteorologist, said.

"It's snowing in Tallahassee, Florida for the first time in 28 years", Mike Seidel, a meteorologist and field reporter for The Weather Channel, tweeted on January 3.

"The last time we had measurable snow was 1989", Humphreys said.

It is possible that those representing Williams did not know about the deal that Wahlberg was able to secure. Williams intrinsically wanted the project to work and waived her fee.

"The National Weather Service forecast office recorded up to 0.1" of sleet and snow on campus.

Officials closed portions of the highway, and schools were canceled out of an abundance of caution, Wool said, as freezing rain that preceded the snow made some roadways slick. Police even had to close the bridges and overpasses in the city out of concern for drivers. In Tallahassee snow fell in some parts of town for about an hour.

In Georgia, up to 6 inches of snow fell in Ellabell, 5 inches was measured in Pembroke, 4 inches accumulated in Nevils, and a general 1 to 2 inches of snow had piled up in Thomasville, Vidalia and as far east as Chatham County. Temperatures are running well below normal for this time of year, and the lows are expected to hover right around freezing. Ten-year-old Ava Alarco enjoyed her day off of school.

In central Florida, the states largest theme parks announced that water attractions such as Disneys Typhoon Lagoon, Universal Orlandos Volcano Bay and SeaWorlds Aquatica were closed.

Making the most of the Souths bitter cold snap, the North Carolina Zoo in Asheboro offered discounted tickets for those willing to courageous the cold to see polar bears frolic in their kind of weather, along with Arctic foxes and elk.
