WASHINGTON, March 26 (UPI) -- A spring snowstorm broke records for many cities in the Midwest and eastern United States, meteorologists say.

In St. Louis, the storm dumped 12.4 inches Sunday, breaking both the record accumulation for March 24 and the snowfall for any day in March, AccuWeather.com said. The previous record was 12.1 inches, set 101 years ago.

Washington, where snow is rare at any time of year, recorded 3.2 inches at Dulles International Airport Monday. The previous record for March 25 was 1.2 inches in 1990.

A total of 3.2 inches was reported in Baltimore Monday, breaking the previous record for the day of 2.5 inches in 1993.

Only a trace of snow fell at Kennedy International and LaGuardia airports in New York City. But that was the first snow ever reported on March 25.
