How cold is it? Snow is falling in Florida

Massive Weather System From Florida To Bring Extreme Snow To Canada featured image

The National Weather Service predicted NY could see 5-8 inches of snow and wind gusts as high as 50 miles per hour on Thursday. Some areas of Savannah and the Georgia coast received up to three inches of snow.

At about 10 p.m. ET, a baggage auto and two sleeper cars on an Amtrak passenger train derailed, but stayed upright near the Savannah station, according to a railroad spokesperson.

"The temperatures are certainly extreme, but we've seen colder", said Joseph Nield, a meteorologist in Indianapolis, noting that the all-time low temperature in IN was minus 36 in 1994.

It already has led to thousands of canceled flights and shuttered schools, as well as fears of outages and flooding. In Tallahassee, students were supposed to return from winter break but got another day thanks to the weather.

Officials are urging residents to stay home so crews can clear streets and roads of what could be as much as foot or more of snow in some places.

Meteorologist Ryan Maue of Weather.US said that while the storm is "akin to a hurricane travelling up the coast", calling it a bomb cyclone might conjure inaccurate images to mind.

The storm was starting to snarl air travel in the southern United States, with about 50 percent of flights canceled at airports in South Carolina's Charleston and Myrtle Beach and Savannah, Georgia, according to the FlightAware tracking service. This is only the second time since the 1980s that Norfolk has been under a blizzard warning.
