Has it ever snowed in Miami Florida?
Various responses from Florida contributors: It snowed December 23, 2009. There are occasional flurries if the winter is unusually cold. It snows every few years in Jacksonv…ille (northern Florida), even occasionally collecting up to an inch or two on the ground. It has only snowed once in Miami (January 19, 1977), and in that case nothing collected on the ground. Yes, it is snowing outside right now. I just rode my bike home and I live in the Saint Augustine area. Yes. Occasionally, in Florida, there are unusual storms that pass through small areas and strange things can happen. I was in mid-Florida (just north of Ocala) in June 1985 when a massive thunderstorm passed overhead and it snowed hard pellets that were not quite sleet or hail - neither one. The snow stayed on the ground for only an hour, but the temperature had dropped from the mid-50s to 28 and then back again in that time. Florida has large grasshoppers (Orthoptera: Acrididae) that were attacking our garden at the time, and I noticed three of them had been frozen in place.
Yes on Dec. 20 1914
No they have Played sec schools but have not been in the sec

Yes it snowed 2 inchs December 21, 1989
Very rarely. Another answerit might someday but dont expect it this winter On January 9, 2010 i woke up and there was snow on my car! So yes it can snow but it only ha…ppens like once every decade. Yes it did once! its snowing right now..... its global warming i tell you!!!
I think it did once about a decade ago, but from personal accounts, the snow melted before it ever touched the ground
Yes, the Miami area experienced light flurries in 1977. First ever recorded snow, and hopefully the last.
Yes, there is a possibility, but it is very rare. In Florida, snow usually only lasts for a very short time (normally about 30 minutes) and it doesn't even look like anything …happened. However, that's rare enough. If you want snow to accumulate, you're going to need to wait a very long time, and by that, I mean you could end up waiting decades for it. For example, I'm writing this in 2012, but Florida hasn't had snow accumulate since 1989. That's 23 years! And who knows? Somebody could read this in the future and it would be even longer. Really, the only major snows Florida has had in the last fifty years was in January 1977 and December 1989. So, since snow in Florida is so rare, you should just go up north, or build a time machine and go back to those dates. However, don't give up, because history does repeat itself. :)
The recorded low temperature was 27 degrees F on 3 February 1917.
It has always been and always will be
In Snow and Ice
Yes, big time in 1977 and in the northern part in early 2010.
Yes. In one case in 1997 a tornado, rated F1, moved right through Miami, damaging buildings and trees and providing some amazing video.
yes there is an chance. if it did snow there it would have to be freezing like -0 or below it in the northern states
Yes. Florida does occasionally get snow in the winter.
