SAVANNAH, Ga. (AP) — Snow flurries are falling as far south as Tallahassee, Florida, where officials were forced to close a section of Interstate 10 due to icy conditions.
The National Weather Service predicted snow flurries across a swath of northern Florida, from Tallahassee to Jacksonville, on Wednesday morning. Accumulations were not expected.
On its Twitter account, The Tallahassee Police Department warned motorists that ice could form on bridges early Wednesday.
The weather service in Tallahassee tweeted that there’s 0.1 inch (0.25 centimeter) of snow on the roof of the building.
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. Also in the Orlando area, theme parks closed water attractions due to cold weather.
