In Tallahassee, numerous vehicle crashes were reported and officials closed off about 55 miles of Interstate 10 in north Florida because of ice.

Snow and freezing rain continued to blanket the eastern seaboard after moving past Florida.

The National Weather Service said a wintry mix of snow and freezing rain was expected Wednesday mostly along the Southeast's Atlantic coast.

"The National Weather Service forecast office recorded up to 0.1" of sleet and snow on campus. Rob Carolan, a meteorologist for Hometown Forecast Services Inc., says winter storm warnings have been issued along the east coast up past MA.

Bloomberg reports that parts of Florida, including its capital of Tallahassee, already experienced snowfall earlier on Wednesday.

Wilmington, North Carolina, saw 3.8 inches of snow which is the highest total there since January 10, 2011 when 3.8 inches was also observed.
