Snow, rain and sleet spread across parts of the South on Saturday, dusting lawns and shrubs with flakes and leading one airline to cancel flights.
Enough snow fell in Montgomery, Ala., for children to make snowballs to toss in front of the state Capitol, although the snow melted on contact with road pavement.
Snow also fell as far south as southwestern Mississippi, with totals of as much as 3 inches, although the ground was too warm to allow it to accumulate. It was that area's first snowfall since 2001, the National Weather Service said.
