Snow in Florida: Flakes fly in Tallahassee

Snow in Florida: Flakes fly in Tallahassee

And at New Hampshire's Mount Washington Observatory, the temperature will drop to a risky -35 degrees Fahrenheit on Friday night into Saturday, weather observer Taylor Reagan said as CNN reported.

The Storm Prediction Center also announced an unusual warning for "heavy freezing rain" for the coast of SC on Wednesday.

"The streets will be slick", DeLoach said as the storm closed in.

"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. It has prompted thousands of canceled flights, shuttered schools and businesses and sparked fears of coastal flooding and power outages. In Tallahassee, students were supposed to return from winter break but got another day thanks to the weather.

Florida State University and Florida A&M University temporarily closed due to the severe weather conditions.

The National Weather Service had blizzard warnings in effect from Virginia to ME, with areas around Boston expected to see about a foot (30 cm) of snow on Thursday.

An arctic air mass will remain entrenched over the eastern two-thirds of the United States through the end of the week.

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

The Cyclones' mark was below their season average of 0.520, while the Hawks' was below their season average of 0.411. Iowa State: It has been a whirlwind season for the Cyclones, and not one many people could have seen coming.


The weather service said the winter storm will probably intensify into a "bomb cyclone" that could dump more than 8 inches (20 centimeters) of snow on the Boston area on Thursday and at least half a foot (15 centimeters) of snow in the New York City region.

Other southern states, including North Carolina, Virginia, Georgia and SC, are also preparing for snowfall.

Blizzard warnings were issued from Rhode Island to Maine.

Travel in the Norfolk area Thursday was predicted to be "very risky to impossible", the weather service said.

Aside from bone-chilling temperatures and ferocious winds, the system was expected to leave Baltimore and Washington largely unscathed, with little or no snow expected. In the central Texas city of Abilene, the local police chief said more than three dozen vehicle crashes were reported in 24 hours.

In New York, a hazardous travel advisory was issued for Thursday by the city's emergency management office.

"There is a lot of potential for records being broken Friday and Saturday", Gallina said.
