(UNDATED) - Forecasters say Indianapolis broke a record, with 6.2 inches of falling snow Sunday.

The previous record on March 24th was 5.8 inches, which happened in 1912. The storm total in the city stood at 8.7 inches as of 11am on Monday.

The National Weather Service received a report from a storm spotter in Parke County that 11.5 inches of snow had fallen in 24 hours there, including the snow that fell during the first wave of the storm early Sunday.

Meteorologist Mike Ryan says we do see snow in late March, but this much snow is very uncommon. Ryan says don't worry, the snow won't stick around as temperatures will climb to the 50s by the weekend.
