The storm is even hitting Florida, a state that rarely sees snow. A 50-mile stretch of Interstate 10 has been shut down due to icing.

The Florida DOT says the highway has been shut down from the Jefferson/Madison County Line to U.S. 129 in Suwannee County. That’s from mile marker 203 to mile marker 358.

The Highway Patrol has set up alternate routes in the area.

Not in the Carolinas or Florida, but super cool

The latest from FOX8’s Van Denton:

Latest Snow Projections from the coastal storm. Biggest totals in the east. Here in the Piedmont-Triad, we are near the edge of the system and will probably see a few flurries late today, mainly this evening and early overnight. IF we get a snow shower, we could get a quick dusting with the ground frozen. There always has to be a cutoff with a system and we are near it with this one. Odds favor it to be just to our south and east. Montgomery County stands the best chance to see a little. Here a dusting to less than 1 inch is expected. As with all systems, the track can shift and increase or decrease numbers.
