Nick Dombek, a Tallahassee resident, posted a Twitter video showing his 5-year-old son frolicking in the snow.

Much of the United States is experiencing freezing temperatures, including the sunshine state.

Officials issued storm warnings for parts of Florida and Georgia, the eastern Carolinas, southeast Virginia and the cities of Savannah, Charleston, Myrtle Beach, Wilmington and Norfolk. The town's most notable colleges, Florida State University and Florida A&M University, got snow days, and three central Florida theme park attractions were forced to shut down due to the cold.

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

The less than an inch of snow was not expected to stick, but it was there long enough for locals to scrawl cheeky messages. There was also a light glaze of ice forming on surfaces in downtown Tallahassee, according to the National Weather Service. "That's why it's so rare".

Canadians, particularly those in the east, should prepare for a bombardment of snow this week that will result fr oma rapidly building weather system in Florida. So the snow "started sticking right away".

In Georgia, up to 6 inches of snow fell in Ellabell, 5 inches was measured in Pembroke, 4 inches accumulated in Nevils, and a general 1 to 2 inches of snow had piled up in Thomasville, Vidalia and as far east as Chatham County.

State officials took safety precautions by closing roads and schools after icy roads caused a traffic accident.

But the sun has already come out there and temperatures have risen above freezing, so "it's already melting away", he said.

The last time Florida's capital got any measurable snowfall was in December 1989, when one inch fell.

The winter storm produced the first measurable snow in Tallahassee, Florida, in over 28 years. Another blast of arctic air will swoop in later, bringing back those minus double-digits.

Parts of SC could see 5 to 6 inches of snow. However, cold snaps that lead to record lows will become less and less likely as Earth's fever runs ever higher.

The snow and freezing temperatures prompted officials to close schools, including Florida State University's Tallahassee campus.
