WX Record

Oct 5, 2012 at 7:56 am

Thursday’s early blast of Winter set a maximum record snowfall in Grand Forks.  The Grand Forks Airport recorded two-point-seven inches while the NWS office received three-and-a-half inches.  The previous record at the GFK was a trace set in 1952 while the NWS office had no snowfall record for the date.  The snow was the equivalent of just over a-half inch of precipitation.


Badger won honors for the most snow with 14 inches……Middle River eight inches…Roseau picked up seven….Karlstad six…and Crookston measured a half foot.


Thursday was also a busy day for power crews… Fargo Xcel Energy saw about 65-hundred customers go dark.  Otter Tail Power saw all or parts of 17 communities have outages because of heavy wet snow and or downed lines.
