Rare storm drops up to 10-inches on area
Thursday, May 2, turned out to be one of those days your kids will tell their kids about. That’s when Clear Lakers woke up to find eight to 10 inches of snow on the ground. Forest City and Britt picked up 11 inches
of snow, setting a new record for daily and monthly snowfall in May in the state. The previous record was 10 inches in LeMars back on May 28, 1947. Several other spots in north-central Iowa saw anywhere between six to 10-inches of snow as part of the unusual May storm.
