I'd probably say going through the southern cities of Dallas TX, Shreveport LA, Jackson MS, and Montgomery AL.

Where I live on MD's eastern shore I feel we are at that line. A bit north of us they'll get snow, we'll usually get rain. Across the bay to the west they get snow, we usually get rain. If we get any snow it's only an inch or 2 usually and is gone the next day. Last year we had flurries that lasted only a couple hours one night where I live. Of course a lot of places had much less then normal as well. 2 and 3 years ago we got a bunch but that wasn't normal. It's strange but the typical system traveling west to east will usually turn to rain by the time they get to us. However, north easters coming up the coast and systems coming from the south, putting some snow on eastern NC and VA will hammer us. So above us in NJ, DE, PA, and the northern part of MD it is deff a greater then 50% chance of getting snow but below us I feel it is less. From where I'm at if I drive north 2 hours I can usually feel a noticeable drop in temp. Likewise if I drive south 2 hours It noticeably increases.
During one of those big snow storms a couple years ago I decided to drive to Charlottsville, VA to show my wife snow for the first time. We had one of those systems coming and I figured it would just be a few inches by the time it got to us. and I thought deep snow by the mountains would be good for her to see. It was a blizzard allright and of course it was coming from the south west. I put my truck in 4 wheel drive the next morning and drove all the way home in a blizzard to eastern MD. You could tell where people were accustomed to snow and not. On 64 in VA towards the mountains they were prepared and traffic was flowing well considering the conditions. They were obviously used to it. Hit 95 towards Richmond and headed up and cars were all over the place. I guess the Richmond area isn't very accustomed to heavy snow. crossed over the 301 bridge in MD and everything settled back down by the time I got towards the DC area. People were used to it again. Then I crossed the bay bridge towards the eastern shore and yep-----car after car off the side of the road.
So perhaps there lies the eastern beginning of your snow line!

No even Miami received snow, in that famous one-off event in 1977:

Mauna Kea, Mauna Loa and high parts of Maui do get snow, even enough for ski-runs, but there are no glaciers up there.
