Breaks record set more than 125 years ago.

____________

The more than 10 inches of snowfall in Des Moines, Iowa, on Monday, 25 Jan 2021, broke an accumulation record set in 1895.

As of 6 p.m., the Des Moines metro had gotten between 4.9 inches and 7 inches, according to Cory Martin, a meteorologist with the National Weather Service in Des Moines.

Between Monday evening and Tuesday morning, central Iowa was expected to get another 4 to 8 inches of snow. Until midnight, the area was expecting at least an inch of snow each hour, Martin said.

Since 1884, only  nine storms have dropped a foot of snow or more in a single day in Des Moines, according to the National Weather Service.
