FORT WALTON BEACH, Fla. — It was a snowy morning in one Florida Panhandle town!
An Okaloosa County Sheriff's Office deputy captured the snow flurries on camera at a Lowe's parking lot around 3 a.m. Monday, according to a Facebook post by the sheriff's office that is now going viral.
"Well how’s this for a temperature change?" the post says. "From 75 degrees at 3 in the afternoon to snow at 3 am captured during patrol in the Lowe’s parking lot on Beal by B-Shift Central! Bundle up out there!"
"It's snowing!" the deputy recording the video can be heard saying as he pans the camera over to show the flakes falling on his sleeve. "See? Snow!"

The last time it snowed in our area was in January of 2018, when a winter storm brought some snow and wintry mix across Northern Florida from Tallahassee to the outskirts of Jacksonville, with a winter storm warning in Nassau, Baker, Union and Columbia counties locally. The National Weather Service reported a quarter inch of ice accumulation in Lake City.
