Snow On a Clear Day?
Can it snow when there isn't a cloud in the sky? This morning it was around 40 degrees here in central Florida. There isn't a cloud to be found anywhere. I swear I saw a short burst of snow flurries not once but twice when I was driving around.

We're 80+ miles from the Atlantic and around 60 miles from the Gulf. As I'm formally from Massachusetts, I know what snow looks like. This really looked like fine granular snow to me.

What do you think? Should I be committed? /laugh4

No,your probably not seeing things. I don't know what the driving engine is behind it,and perhaps some on here know,but it's not uncommon up here in the mountains to see spitting snow on a clear day.

Snow on a clear day is usually from blowing snow. That is snow that is already on the ground getting picked up by the wind, carried a distance and then released (aka fall out of the sky).

Virgo since you are in FL and have seen some droughts recently, are there any forest/marsh fires near by? The ash that falls from these fires will resemble snow on a clear day.
