Florida was the holdout on Wednesday as the National Weather Service reported all the other 49 states had snow on the ground, MyFoxBoston reports.

Snow covered 69.4 percent of the United States as of Tuesday. The weather service said that is more than double the snow cover from last month.

Hawaii even saw flurries as Hawaii News Now said snow fell on the Mauna Kea volcano on the Big Island. 

Because events like this are not tracked by the weather service there's no way to say how rare it is, but it is at least the second time within a year's time.

The Associated Press reported on Feb. 13, 2010, that 49 states had at least some snow cover.Florida had snow while Hawaii and its 13,800-foot Mauna Kea did not.

There are no reports of all 50 states having snow at once. The AP reported that Jan. 19, 1977, had snow in all states but South Carolina.

Colder air is on the way with temperatures up to 25 degrees below average.

That leaves Florida with time to join in.
