TALLAHASSEE (CBSMiami) - Tallahassee residents woke to an unusual sight - snow.

Wednesday morning large snowflakes fell and lightly covered the ground.

The brutal winter weather that has affected much of the U.S. is now bringing a mix of ice and snow accumulation to parts of the South.

Wednesday morning, the Florida Highway Patrol closed I-10, the major east-west corridor in the northern part of the state, from Tallahassee to Live Oak because of ice.

By 9 a.m., the snow began to taper off in the state's capital city but the freezing rain and sleet continued.

The last time Tallahassee received measurable snowfall was in December 1989 when an inch fell.
