Orlando, Florida had wind chills in the 20s
Snow flurries spotted in South Florida
Did it happen? Did it snow in South Florida on Saturday afternoon?
The National Weather Service in Miami on Saturday night was investigating nearly a dozen reports from West Palm Beach on down to Kendall from weather observers who said they saw snow flurries mixed in with the rain that fell in the afternoon, said meteorologist Joel Rothfuss.
Some of those reports were in Broward.
"We can't deny it didn't happen. We just haven't been able to confirm it," Rothfuss said.
He added that the area most likely saw the rain mixed with bits of frozen rain, called sleet, but that the ice pellets were so tiny they apparently melted upon touching the ground.
Even if it wasn't snow, the icy rain is still a rarity for South Florida.
The last time South Florida saw snow flurries was Jan. 19, 1977.
