A frigid Arctic air mass, having plagued the Northeast for more than a week, barreled deep into the South on Thursday, dumping a thick blanket of snow over parts of Dixie and sending Florida citrus growers to the misting machines they keep in reserve to protect their trees from cold. Clover, S.C., was buried under 9 inches of snow, while the Outer Banks of North Carolina, usually insulated by the waters of the Atlantic, received its first significant snowfall in 13 years.

This North Woods community, known as the "icebox of the nation," felt the chill of winter Monday, even though the calendar showed it was summer. The low of 34 degrees at 5:17 a.m. local time set a record for the date, which the National Weather Service attributed to a not-unusual blast of Arctic air. It was even colder in Tower, Minn., which hit a low of 24 degrees.
