Tallahassee's first snow day in almost 30 years

Snow coats North Florida, first time in nearly three decades

Florida's capital sees first measurable snowfall in nearly 30 years

Snow, sleet and freezing rain may increase in eastern North Carolina and southeast Virginia by Wednesday afternoon.

The storm, which is being called a "bomb cyclone" or "bombogenesis" - a term used to describe powerful low-pressure systems that intensify rapidly, according to weather.com, is traveling north along the East Coast, bringing heavy snow and strong winds with it. Rob Carolan, a meteorologist for Hometown Forecast Services Inc., says winter storm warnings have been issued along the east coast up past MA.

The last time Tallahassee had measurable snow was in December 1989, when 1 inch (2.5 cm) fell on the city.

The winter storm impacted much of Florida's Big Bend region, along with Tift, Colquitt and Thomas Counties in Georgia.

The local National Weather Service office said they had.1 inch of snow on the roof of their building by 8:30 a.m., though it stopped snowing by 9 a.m.

"It has to be cold enough to accumulate", Mark Wool, the warning coordination meteorologist at the National Weather Service (NWS) in Tallahassee, told Live Science.

In Tallahassee, numerous vehicle crashes were reported and officials closed off about 55 miles of Interstate 10 in north Florida because of ice.

"In fact, from the year 1900 through at least 1950, there was no measurable snow".
