Des Moines last saw measurable snowfall on March 4th, and unless some unlikely flurries appear tomorrow, the city will break its record for consecutive days without measurable snow.

The previous record of 277 days was set in 1889, and meteorologists say that it’s about to be broken.

“There’s no snow in the next three days, so it’s looking very very likely, unless something comes up, that we’ll beat that record,” National Weather Service meteorologist Kevin Skow said.
