Honey, Honey....Get the Skis. We got some powder to conquer. Snow in 49 states have the National Weather Service in awe as Wednesday saw snowfall on the ground in 49 out of 50 U.S. states -- including Hawaii. The only state that didn't record snowfall is Florida, according to the National Weather Service. It is estimated that 70.9 percent of the country is currently covered by snow.
"It's not typical," says NWS public affairs officer James Peronto.
"The Southern states don't typically get significant snow amounts through the year," Peronto said. "It takes a special kind of weather scenario to allow that to happen."
Though snow that covers most of the U.S. is a rarity, the last time the NWS recorded snow in all 50 states was last February.
There are no reports of all 50 states having snow at once. In 1977, the U.S. experienced snow in all states but South Carolina.
