    On This Date in Iowa Weather History (courtesy of the NWS): 1954: Virtually no snow fell in Iowa for the first 24 days of February before a storm struck from the 25th-27th, producing very heavy snow in a band from northwestern through east central Iowa. The heaviest snowfall amounts were recorded in a swath from around Marshalltown to east of Cedar Rapids. Several stations in this area received record snowfall including Cedar Rapids where 16.7 inches of snow fell on the 26th and a storm total of 17.8 inches was received. These remain the single day and storm total snowfall records at that location. At Des Moines, south of the band of heaviest snow, a total of only 3.9 inches was recorded for the entire three day event.
