Actually almost all of the state has at least reported a trace of snow at least once. Many younger Floridians are probably too young to have remembered.

Actually, just about all of Florida has seen snow except for the Keys. Now, if you're talking about accumulating snow, then about half the state has.

..not to sound repetitive. I just noticed the post above mine. haha

The weather there is similar to Amarillo, Texas and the Texas Panhandle. You get brief cold spells where it can get down close to single digits with blizzard conditions and very cold wind chill. It gets colder there and often more snow than in places like Albuquerque which is at a higher elevation, or farther west in New Mexico. Areas west of the continental divide tend to be sheltered from the some of the effects of the winter cold fronts.

The snow tends to melt quickly, it can warm into the 60's a few days after one of these storms. Snow usually does not last too long.

I don't think so. Some of their record lows are only in the 50s, if I remember correctly.

I would assume most of Florida (except the keys) have at least seen flakes fly. Don't know about Brownsville, TX, but didn't McAllen get hit in 2004?

Yes, Brownsville has. On that Christmas in 2004 they got 1.5 inches, first accumulation since 1895.

Snow in Death Valley is not unheard of. Just because it's the hottest place during the summer doesn't mean it's the warmest place during the winter. Though the last time it snowed was 60 years ago, in 1949.

Death Valley has been as cold as 15 degrees before.
