Overnight total snowfall sets new Indy record

INDIANAPOLIS (AP) — The overnight snowstorm that left 7.2 inches of snow in Indianapolis set a new weather record for the date.

National Weather Service meteorologist Mike Ryan said the total snowfall from Sunday was the most that has fallen in the city since 1912, when the state capital got 5.8 inches. The weather agency hasn't been able to find a greater total than the 7.2 inches for Sunday and Monday morning.

While it isn't all that rare for Indiana to get snow in March, Ryan says it is unusual to get so much.

The latest snow has fallen in central Indiana is early May, but that's just a trace. With warm ground and the sun higher in the sky, snow can't build up or stick around.
