Snow, Ice Falls On Central Florida
Wintry Mix Possible Through Saturday Morning

ORLANDO, Fla. -- Residents across Central Florida reported seeing snow and ice falling as a wintry mix of precipitation early Saturday.

"Most of the snow this morning has been confined to Marion County, northwestern Flagler and northwestern Lake counties and extreme western Volusia County," WESH 2 News chief meteorologist Tony Mainolfi said.

Viewers in Flagler and Marion counties reported seeing snow flurries just after 5 a.m. Another viewer in Brevard County reported flurries along the beach at Cape Canaveral. Ice reports were also received from Volusia, Orange and Osceola counties.

Mainolfi warned residents in northern Central Florida to beware of ice on bridges and roadways in the area. Emergency managers in Marion County said deputies will be monitoring conditions on bridges throughout the morning.

The chance of snow should end by early Saturday afternoon as the sun brought higher temperatures.

I lived in San Antonio for 7 years. In all that time there was one snowfall---a whopping one inch. There were accidents everywhere and the interstate was closed.

BTW, it's so cold here that a bottle of water we had left in the car (which is garaged) was frozen.
