Snow in Florida: Tallahassee sees first significant snow since 1989

Forecasters said the night-time temperature would fall below freezing in Tallahassee this week.

"Rare sight: it's snowing in Tallahassee FL for the 1st time in 28 years", Weather Channel meteorologist Mike Seidel tweeted.

The US National Weather Service warned that a major winter storm would bring heavy snow and ice, from Florida in the southeast up to New England and the Northeast on Wednesday and Thursday.

For the first time in almost 30 years, white stuff fell from the sky on Wednesday in Tallahassee, Fla.

In preparation, the mayor of Jacksonville closed city offices to all but essential personnel, advising people to stay off the roads. In Tallahassee, school officials announced that classes would remain closed Wednesday.

Florida State University and Florida A&M University were also closed Wednesday. Several law enforcement agencies issued warnings to drivers to be extra careful on slick roads.

The last time a wintry blast hit Tallahassee with any measurable snowfall was December 22-23, 1989, when an inch fell.

It is expected to be even colder in Central Florida on Thursday.

Although temperatures will continue to dip below freezing in the area for the next few days, a zero percent chance of precipitation means this might be Tallahassee's only fling with snow for the foreseeable future.
