The recorded low temperature was 27 degrees F on 3 February 1917.
Yes it snowed 2 inchs December 21, 1989
Surprisingly, neither the Antarctic nor the Arctic are the snowiest places on Earth. The record goes to Mount Baker in Washington State, USA. The Mount Baker Ski Area reported… a record 1,140 inches (95 feet) / 2,896 cm (29 meters) of snowfall for the 1998-99 season.
Yes. In one case in 1997 a tornado, rated F1, moved right through Miami, damaging buildings and trees and providing some amazing video.
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.
No they have Played sec schools but have not been in the sec

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. :)
Yes, though it is relatively rare (moreso the further south you go).
In Miami, Florida it does not snow because we are to close to the equator. Many people believe it is because it does not get cold in of . That is false. The reason it is false… is because last winter it madeit to 20 degrees and did not snow. Now we under stand why it does not snow in Miami
No, the city of Miami is in the state of Florida within the United States. You had it backwards.
