    On This Date in Iowa Weather History (courtesy of the NWS): 1918: A very late light snow was observed at a few locations in Iowa but it melted as it fell and generally did not accumulate. However, at Des Moines a light dusting occurred with 0.1 inches of snow reported making this the second-latest date of measurable snow on record at Des Moines, only two days earlier than the amazing statewide snowfall of May 15, 1907.

    …In U.S. Weather History: 1930 – A man was killed when caught in an open field during a hailstorm northwest of Lubbock TX. It was the first, and perhaps the only, authentic death by hail in U.S. weather records. (David Ludlum)
