Southern US goes into deep freeze

Subfreezing temperatures chill much of the South -

ATLANTA — Freezing cold spread across the South and all the way to the Gulf Coast early Sunday, a day after the region got an unusual coating of snow.

Thermometers fell to 17 degrees early Sunday at Hartsfield-Jackson Atlanta International Airport, and Blairsville in northeastern Georgia recorded a low of 9, said Stephen Konarik, a meteorologist at the National Weather Service in Peachtree City outside Atlanta.

Daytime temperatures Sunday were expected to rise only into the mid-30s.

Where's the disclaimer that shows global warming is still happening? Here it is:
As much as 5 inches of snow fell in Alabama. The state's last major winter storm dropped 16 inches in March 1993.

The clash of warm and cold air helped produce two tornadoes along Florida's west coast late Saturday afternoon, the weather service said. No injuries and little damage were reported.
