Record snowfall in North Dakota

11 Oct 18 – Early taste of winter – One of the highest totals reported so far: 17 inches (43.8 cm) west of Finley, 16.5 inches near Hannaford, 14.2 inches west of Hope.

Grand Forks set a record snowfall for the date: 5.7 inches at the National Weather Service office on the UND campus.

Snowfall amounts elsewhere include:

13 inches in Valley City
12.5 inches in Larimore
12 inches (30 cm) in Cooperstown, Dazey, and northeast of Sharon.
9.3 inches at Grand Forks Air Force Base.

KFGO Chief Meteorologist Tom Szymanski said it’s not uncommon for early snow storms like this to produce narrow bands of heavy snow.

(I’m not so sure that record snowfall can be classed as “not uncommon.”)
