It’s true -- you are not dreaming. For the first time in 28 years, snow fell on the streets of Tallahassee, Florida during rush hour Wednesday morning.
The conditions are cold enough for the snow to form, but videos show it quickly melting as it hits the ground. The National Weather Service measured 0.1” of snow/sleet on their rooftop.
Roughly 50 miles of Interstate 10 have been closed in Tallahassee due to snow an ice. In lieu of the traditional salt, the unusual weather has prompted Florida Highway Patrol to lay down sand to melt the ice, according to ABC News’ Victor Oquendo.
Snowfall is unlikely in Orlando, but could be possible in Central Florida’s most northern regions, according to Channel 9 Eyewitness News.
