What a start to May! This record snowfall is going to slow our travel today…but more snow is on the way tonight through tomorrow. 1-3 inches of snow for Des Moines today…but another 3 to 5 inches could fall tonight as this system backs up into the colder temperatures.

The old records for snow in Iowa were set during a storm that hit the state in 1947. Already 10+” of snow was recorded in Mason City. This storm is setting up to crush all snow records for May.

Here are several pictures from the storm today.
