Rare Snowfall In May

LINCOLN -- A spring storm has left a heavy batch of slushy snow on parts of eastern Nebraska and western and north-central Iowa.  In the past 12 hours, more than 6 inches has been recorded in isolated parts of western Iowa and along the Minnesota border in northern Iowa.  Nebraska totals are generally lower.  As of 7am Thursday, 3.1 inches of snow fell at the Lincoln Airport, which has passed a May record of 3 inches that was set in 1967. National Weather Service meteorologist Josh Boustead called the May storm "really, really unusual."  Totals around the Lincoln area may vary compared to the official amount.
