South Eastern America is seeing its earliest and deepest snow falls in over 100 years, whilst temperature records have also been broken. The cold spell is drawing predictions of a new mini ice age between at least 2015 and 2035, or possibly for the rest of this century. Tennessee, North and South Carolina and Georgia all saw unexpected snow, in some places up to a foot deep.

The Climatology Office in South Carolina has confirmed that Concord, South Carolina has broken a 125 year record for the earliest snow seen. The office also said that South Carolina has already doubled its annual expected snowfall, over a month and a half before any snow is expected.

State legislatures are having to find extra cash as road salting and clearance budgets have ballooned. Maryland has been forced to nearly double its budget this year from $70m to $130m, whilst the biggest rise in percentage terms is in Arkansas, where legislators are digging deep to find an extra $16.5m, up from just $1.5m last year. Other states have already blown through their budgets are having to consider where to make cuts to fill the gap. Virginia is facing a $150m shortfall already, and that figure may yet rise.

Tennessee, Arkansas, Kentucky and up into West Virginia are expected to have 167 percent of their average snowfall this winter, according to WeatherBell, whilst much of the surrounding South Easer States is the snowfall this year is expected to be up a third on the average level.
