Grand Forks saw 3.6 inches of snow Tuesday, resulting in a total of 11.8 inches over the course of a three-day weather pattern that rolled through the region starting Sunday.

The first event began late Sunday afternoon and lasted into Monday morning, bringing 8.2 inches of snow. Tuesday, another 3.6 inches had fallen by 4 p.m., according to the National Weather Service.

The pattern on Monday created blizzard conditions throughout much of eastern North Dakota, although Grand Forks County never did reach that designation. Instead, the county was under a winter storm warning for most of Monday.

Although snow totals for the entire region were not yet compiled as of late Tuesday afternoon, National Weather Service meteorologist Jacob Spender said the snowfall around the Grand Forks region generally ranged from 7 to 12 inches on Sunday-Monday and about 2 to 4 inches Tuesday.

Spender said there is a "very slight" chance of snow Thursday, and said frigid temperatures will be the weather news for the remainder of the week.


According to a WDAY weather forecast, high temperatures on Thursday, Friday and Saturday all will be below zero, with Saturday expected to be the worst — with a high of minus-12 and a low of minus-26.
