Yellow, orange and white? Mid-South snowfall makes an appearance amid fall foliage

Snow in Memphis

MEMPHIS, Tenn. (WMC) - November in the Mid-South is a time for the leaves to change and the sun to shine.

“I like the fall it’s not too hot, not too cold,” Alexa Jones said.

Along with the greens, yellows and oranges, white was sprinkled onto the fall landscape Tuesday. Snow and freezing temperatures showed up Nov. 12.

“I think this is horrible,” Jones said.

Sleet and snow came down overnight, but didn’t leave much by early morning Tuesday. Once the sun came up, another round of snow came down. It was something called river-effect snow.

“It did shock me being that last week it was in the 60s and it's supposed to warm back up,” Janika White said.

While people we talked to downtown said they can live with the snow, they’re not ready for these freezing temperatures. The windchill Tuesday dipped into the single digits in much of the mid-south.

“I don't like it. I don't like it at all,” White said.

“Literally my hands are ice, ice cold,” Jones said.

“I think it's refreshing,” Angelia Clark said. “It makes me feel good, invigorated and free. I love it!”

Angelia Clark isn’t like most people. While most of us put on lots of layers and warm boots, Clark was still rocking summer footwear.

“Flip Flops I like to keep my feet out,” Clark said. “I love it I love it yes I do.”

Clark admits many people think she’s crazy. The Memphis native said it’s in her blood.

“I was born in February so I love cold weather,” Clark said.

Love it or hate it, experiencing winter weather in mid-November is just another day in the Mid-South.
