Unsettled weather continues for much of the US for Memorial Day. The heaviest rainfall will occur across the southern plains.



On this day in 1882 an unusually late snowstorm blanketed eastern Iowa with up to half a foot of snow. For perspective, today they are in the 70s and will be in the lower to mid 80s tomorrow.
