One of the rarest snowfalls in the state's history came when flurries fell across South Florida - even at Miami Beach - on January 19, 1977, the first time that had happened in recorded history, according to the NWS.

For the moment, PIX11 News' Weather Center is calling for 4 to 8 inches of snow in the five boroughs and along the Jersey Shore, with 8 to 12 inches of accumulation on eastern Long Island, and about 1 to 4 inches of snow in western and northern New Jersey. Accumulations were not expected.

"Snow on my grapefruit tree in Tallahassee this morning!" one user tweeted. Video via 904 Happy Hour. Wednesday was to be the first day back for students. The department also warned motorists that ice could form on bridges early Wednesday. Brunswick police added that there have already been crashes and they are advising motorists to stay off the roads.

The most snow Florida's capital has ever seen was 2.8 inches (7.1 cm), which fell in 1958.

The National Weather Service said snow and freezing rain was expected to spread up the coast and warned that icy roads and low visibility could make driving treacherous.

Winter Storm Grayson caused small flurries to fall in the notoriously warm state, putting a total of 0.1 inches of snow on the ground, reports Time.




Much of the state is under a weather alert, from freeze warnings and wind chill advisory to a winter storm warning. 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.

In Orlando, Florida's largest theme parks announced that water attractions such as Disney's Typhoon Lagoon, Universal Orlando's Volcano Bay and SeaWorld's Aquatica were closed Wednesday because of the cold snap.

The temperature early Wednesday in Orlando was 50 degrees Fahrenheit and it was raining.

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.

It's snowing in Tallahassee!

The North Carolina Zoo is offering half-priced admission while a bitter cold wave sweeps the South, giving visitors a chance to see polar bears frolic in their kind of weather.
