Q:

Has it ever snowed in Florida?

A:

Despite Florida's reputation for warm, sunny weather, snow does infrequently fall in the state. Florida's capital city of Tallahassee, located in the northern part of the state, has experienced measurable snowfall seven times since 1891, with traces of snow occurring on 26 other occasions during the same time period.

According to the National Weather Service website, the largest recorded snowfall during a 24-hour period in Tallahassee occurred in February of 1958 with 2.8 inches of snow. Four inches of snow fell in the panhandle town of Milton in 1954. The only confirmation of snow in the southern part of the state since 1900 occurred in January of 1977 when snow fell as far south as Miami.
