Flaky Weather: Why Tallahassee Got Its 1st Measurable Snow in Decades

Flaky Weather: Why Tallahassee Got Its 1st Measurable Snow in Decades

Although bomb cyclones are not necessarily uncommon, they can result in powerful storms under certain conditions, and forecasters have warned states lining the east coast that this bomb cyclone could be just as powerful as Hurricane Sandy.

Florida State University and Florida A&M University were also closed Wednesday.

Officials in Tallahassee closed down more than 50 miles of Interstate 10 because of icy conditions Wednesday morning, as flurries fell for the first time since 1989, city officials said.

A winter storm warning extended from the Gulf Coast in Floridas "Big Bend" region all the way up the Atlantic coast. And a 2016 Climate Central research report found that winter precipitation was increasingly falling not as snow, but as rain in many states across the country.

RARE SIGHT: it's snowing in Tallahassee FL for the 1st time in 28 years. The snow stopped in the middle of the afternoon Wednesday, but Tallahassee officials still warned people to be careful while driving on the roads.

About.1 inch of snow/sleet was accumulated on the roof of the National Weather Service's Tallahassee office, the agency said.

In Savannah, a coastal city that hasn't seen measurable snowfall since February 2010, up to 2 inches (5 centimeters) of snow and sleet were forecast. Dump trucks spread sand on major streets ahead of the storm and police closed several bridges, overpasses and a major causeway because of ice. The Weather Channel predicted up to five and a half inches for Savannah, with three to six inches for South Carolina. Wow.

The coating of white stuff over some northern parts of the Sunshine State, as well as southern Georgia, came courtesy of a storm system that is expected to rapidly strengthen as it moves up the East Coast, bringing strong winds and potentially heavy snowfall. But Florida, especially its northern reaches, can certainly see temperatures drop when cold air invades from the north, as it has over the last few days.
