Global Warming Threatens Pensacola, Fla.

Brrrrrrr:

The National Weather Service is forecasting snow for parts of the Florida Panhandle thanks to an arctic blast.

Meteorologist Steve Miller says freezing rain and snow could move in later Tuesday afternoon. He says there could be up to an inch of snow in areas north of Interstate 10 in Escambia and Okaloosa counties.

He says a large area of rain is currently moving over Louisiana and Mississippi. It should move in to Florida later Tuesday, brining freezing rain and — for some — snow. That’s unusual for Florida.
