Wednesday rainfall totals 3 to 4 inches in some areas

Grand Forks didn't get much rain out of Wednesday night's storm, but some places got as much as 3 to 4 inches, according to the National Weather Service and Herald readers.

Grand Forks didn't get much rain out of Wednesday night's storm, but some places got as much as 3 to 4 inches, according to the National Weather Service and Herald readers.

Wesley Wolfgram said he got about 3 inches of rain at his home north of Niagara, N.D., and nearby neighbors recorded 4 inches.

The weather service reported 4.5 inches of rain at Starkweather, about 25 miles north of Devils Lake.

Bill Hodous, extension agent for Ramsey County, said the area has received 8 to 9 inches of rain from three storms the past week, and there has been some damage to crops in the area. "There is some scab and a possibility for white mold on the edible beans," he said. "But the 90 degree days predicted for next week should help a lot."

Areas of Towner County received about 2 inches of rain during the past couple of nights, according to Terry Lykken, Towner County extension agent. "We have had above-average area rainfall this year, but the crops are in pretty good shape," he said. "I haven't heard anyone complain about the rain yet, so it can't be that far above average." Scattered thunderstorms could continue today south and east of a line from Roseau, Minn., to Valley City, N.D., according to the weather service. They should end this afternoon and make way for a nice weekend.
