47 years ago, it snowed in South Florida for only time in recorded history

Exactly 47 years ago, snow fell in South Florida for the only time in recorded history.

WPTV First Alert Weather chief meteorologist Steve Weagle said that on Jan. 19, 1977, enough snow accumulated to cover the ground and be recorded in weather history books.

Weather observers spotted flakes in West Palm Beach, LaBelle, Hollywood, and the Royal Palm Ranger Station in deep south Miami-Dade County.

“The temps that day were in the low 30s,” WPTV First Alert Weather meteorologist Jennifer Correa said. “But by 9:30 in the morning that day, 1977, South Florida’s big snow day was over. Obviously, it melted. It didn’t stick.”
