Climate Change Brings Snow To Florida And 'Bomb Cyclone' To East Coast

New York City under winter storm watch

The town's most notable colleges, Florida State University and Florida A&M University, got snow days, and three central Florida theme park attractions were forced to shut down due to the cold.

Florida's capital woke up to snow and sleet on Wednesday, the first significant accumulation of frozen precipitation since 1989.

As the storm moves north from Florida, it will drop as many as 30 cm of snow in Boston and similar amounts in eastern Canada.

Did Hina Khan Compare Shilpa Shinde To A CALL GIRL?
Shilpa says she will either destroy her make up or damage her "Sher Khan" mug given by her boyfriend Rocky Jaiswal. Most of the time, Akash crossed the limits, which not only irritated the contestants but also the fans.

Making the most of the Souths bitter cold snap, the North Carolina Zoo in Asheboro offered discounted tickets for those willing to fearless the cold to see polar bears frolic in their kind of weather, along with Arctic foxes and elk.

It is expected to be even colder in Central Florida on Thursday. The snow stopped in the middle of the afternoon Wednesday, but Tallahassee officials still warned people to be careful while driving on the roads.

Officials said about 0.1 inch snow was reported on the roof of the weather service office in Tallahassee.

Calcutta University's decision to confer honorary DLitt to Mamata Banerjee uncertain
His counsel Bikas Bhattacharya submitted that university issues and education itself are of public interest and as such the petition was justified to be a PIL.

Forecasters said the night-time temperature would fall below freezing in Tallahassee this week.

In Georgia, up to 6 inches of snow fell in Ellabell, 5 inches was measured in Pembroke, 4 inches accumulated in Nevils, and a general 1 to 2 inches of snow had piled up in Thomasville, Vidalia and as far east as Chatham County. Another blast of arctic air will swoop in later, bringing back those minus double-digits.

Snowstorms and cold snaps - particularly in rare places like Florida - are often used by climate change doubters in attempts to debunk the concept of human-caused climate change, that is, the established rise in Earth's temperatures because of heat-trapping greenhouse gases. Record highs have already been increasingly outpacing record lows in the US, now by about 2 to 1. State highway officials also closed parts of Interstate 10, between Capital Circle Southwest to Live Oak in Suwanee County due to ice on the roadway. Check out the map, Blue-shaded areas could get snow.

Controversial former sheriff Joe Arpaio running for Senate in Arizona
Arpaio is also known for retaliating against political adversaries and using various freakish schemes for the sake of publicity. But he also packs nationwide fund-raising clout and strong support among the Arizona's Republican base.

As temperatures increase overall, they eat away at the range for all snow to form faster than the one for extreme snow, so blizzards drop off less quickly than snows overall.
