Transcript for Cold front blasts through Georgia, Florida
getting hit so we go to Victor Oquendo in Tallahassee as schools are closing as a storm moves in there. Good morning. Reporter: That's right, good morning, robin. Riding along with the Florida highway patrol along interstate 10. You can hear that cold rain coming down. Parts shut down because of the icy conditions and seen a number of accident, cars slipping all over I-10 as well. Captain Ryan Martina nice enough to give us a ride. The patrol car was frozen over. It was. Ever seen anything like it. Very uncommon. A look at another uncommon sight. This fountain completely frozen over. See all that ice. The problem with ice in Florida, not exactly a state equipped to ham those types of conditions so now being told instead of salt, they'll now be laying down sand to battle all ice and snow accumulating here. It doesn't get more Florida than that. Combating the snow and ice with sand. A way of looking at it. I love how the officer kept his eyes on the road. Doing his job. Let's bring in ginger. The storm is moving. Fill us in on the track. You can hear it in Victor's shot. That is sleet and he was talking about freezing rain that was glazing the cars. That happened in Lake City, Florida, and you could see more than a tenth of an inch of ice start to accumulate. As the storm that developing low starts to push north, the timing of it takes it through Florida and Georgia this morning then South Carolina and north Carolina this afternoon and tonight and that's why we see all those schools closed up and down throughout the southeast. It clips the mid-atlantic, the farther east you are, the more snow and the more wind you get so the tighter you are to the storm that is off the coast that is where you're going to see the heaviest snow and certainly wind gusts, guys, could go up to 70 miles per hour. Some of the places here in new England could have over a foot.
