    Will It Snow In Florida?

    PEMBROKE PARK, Fla. -- Don't be fooled by Friday afternoon's warm weather. Another cold front is on the way, and it could even bring snow flurries to Central Florida.

    After several nights of temperatures in the 40s and even the upper 30s, South Florida got a break from the chilly weather. Friday's highs reached the mid-70s, and the skies were a mix of clouds and sunshine.

    I vote yes.

    Atlanta is at a standstill today after 1/2 inch of snow fell overnight. The high today was, like, 19. It is so cold.

    I am all about FL getting some snow!
    I do not intend to tiptoe through life only to arrive safely at death!

    If memory serves the last time it snowed in south Florida was in the seventies. It wasn't really what you would call snow, it would look like someone threw sand at your car, and never really accumulated on the ground. I was disappointed as a youngster. It has snowed in the panhandle a couple of times, not sure about central Florida. I moved to northern Georgia almost a couple of years ago and have enjoyed at least an inch or more of snow a few times a year. I love it. Building a snowman is a pain though. It is 15 degrees out right now.

    It's almost been a year since we did our last show.Jay Bush my partner has been auditioning for the show Shark Tank and so this has put the show on hold. If he gets on Shark Tank, we will be terribly delayed. Good luck Jay. Either way we will one day continue the show and have the coolest global independent radio station out there. This is just a small video we did with one of our artists.Waiting for One and their tune 35 years. Check it out.

    I was living in West Orange County back in 77 when it snowed. We got quite a bit for FL, covered our deck before we had to leave the house to go get a new well pump that had ruptured from the cold.

    My DH and son wanting to stay up all night to see if it snows. Although it would be interesting to see I am about ready for it to warm back up. Been a long time since we have had this many cold days in a row. It has gotten to where the tiled concrete slab of our house feels like ice....brrrr...I could use a hot flash about now!

    Poco - It's not much better south, maybe Key West!

    Checking in from SW Florida, 38* now, at 5:30am & raining. Expected low of 29

    In 1989 it did snow here and as far south as Sarasota, I think it may have been Christmas Eve.

    OH Ladies, I hope it doesn't snow for my own selfish reasons. I am so tired of cold weather and snow already. Hope you all warm up.

    This was in Miami, in the seventies as I remember my neighbors were from Utah and had a sled and had the bright idea to put wheels on the sled, we were pulling it with a bicycle and when he turned the corner my sister who was the daredevil rolled off and broke her leg.(no airbags back then). Like I said there was no snow, to break the fall. That didn't stop her ventures though, when she got old enough she moved to Alaska. I moved to Georgia, where it snows maybe a inch or two or three times a years. Which is fine, but it stays as low as the teens during Jan, Feb and sometimes March. I lived in Orlando for about a year and it never snowed but it did lighting a lot.

    I had to buy myself a hat, scarf and gloves today. I can't believe this. I am use to sitting on the beach in January.

    I was thinking the samething as I was walking my dog at 5:30 this morning. How can you live like this day after day?!

    I'm in SW FL and it's 31 here. All of my neighbors have their plants covered, including myself. I'm sure that I will probably will loose some of the tropical ones.

    I finally brought most of my "potted plants" in last night. They weren't looking to healthy although I have had them covered with sheets for about a week now - maybe it's just the lack of sunlight because of the sheets. I know they surely would have froze last night. They are in the garage, which might not be the best place, but better than being outside.
