WASHINGTON (AP) - Forty-nine states have snow now, from the Gulf Coast's Redneck Riviera to the skyscrapers of Dallas.

The lone holdout? Hawaii.

Although snow falls every winter on Hawaii's two tallest volcanoes, the National Weather Service in Honolulu said there was no snow in the state Friday.

Snow had even fallen in the Florida Panhandle and along the South Carolina coast. However, snow has been lighter than usual in New England. Forecasters say El Nino has driven many of this year's storms southward.

Weather Service Meteorologist Brian Korty says it's extremely rare to have so many states with snow.
