I'm not sure how often this happens, but a significant snow for the deep south occurred on Thursday. Winter storm warnings were issued for much of Southeastern Louisiana and Southern Mississippi through the day Thursday. An inch of snow fell on New Orleans and several more fell in Mississippi. It looks from the traffic cameras that there were very few traffic problems due to the warm pavement temperatures, but what a treat for folks in that part of the country at Christmas time. I'm sure there are several kids and maybe adults too who had never seen snow before.
