Winter is Coming! Tallahassee Sees First Snow in 28 Years

The National Weather Service predicted snow flurries across a swath of northern Florida, from Tallahassee to Jacksonville, on Wednesday morning.

As of now, it looks as if the area between the USA 1 and I-95 corridor will see a trace to one inch late Wednesday into Wednesday night with two to three inches as you approach the I-95 corridor. "We could have some serious issues for folks who aren't used to driving in this kind of weather".

Georgia Gov. Nathan Deal declared a state of emergency through Friday for 28 counties because of the frigid weather.

"The temperatures are certainly extreme, but we've seen colder", said Joseph Nield, a meteorologist in Indianapolis, noting that the all-time low temperature in IN was minus 36 in 1994.

Schools in at least five districts canceled classes on Wednesday as well. In Tallahassee, students were supposed to return from winter break but got another day thanks to the weather. Another blast of arctic air will swoop in later, bringing back those minus double-digits.

Environment Canada has issued its own warnings for New Brunswick and Nova Scotia, including Halifax.

Indianapolis on Tuesday tied a record low of -12 degrees for January 2 set in 1887, leading Indianapolis Public Schools to cancel classes.

People are sledding in Charleston, South Carolina, and snowball fights have already broken out in Savannah, Georgia.

With Chicago-area wind chills expected between -35 and -20 degrees, forecasters warned of frost bite and hypothermia risks and urged residents to take precautions, including dressing in layers, wearing a hat and gloves, covering exposed skin and bringing pets indoors. 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. This is only the second time since the 1980s that Norfolk has been under a blizzard warning.

"It's sort of akin to a hurricane traveling up the coast", said Ryan Maue, a meteorologist at the private firm Weather.US.

A storm is considered a bomb when it drops 24 millibars of pressure in 24 hours.

"Storms that undergo bombogenesis are among the most violent weather systems that affect a broad area, "Sosnowski says". That's the most snowfall in Charleston since December 1989, and plenty for Chris Monoc's sons, ages 4 and 2, to go sledding outside their home near the city's iconic Ravenel Bridge.
