Rare November snow in Southern USA

Snow falls in Memphis, TN, USA, 28 Nov 2011 (AP)

Snow does fall in the American South but rarely in November as it did yesterday and today.

Snow fell in cities such as Nashville, Memphis and Jackson, Tennessee (where as much as 10 cm was reported) which seldom see more than a few flakes before December. 

U.S. weather officials say the last time Nashville saw more than two centimetres of snow in November was in 1966.

Tupelo, Mississippi has only seen three days with measurable snowfall in November since 1930.       

Schools closed in some areas after the snow created icy bridges and overpasses.
