46.5 Inches of Snow So Far in Grand Forks

Several large storms so far this winter have dumped 46.5 inches of snow in Grand Forks. A normal yearly snowfall is considered to be 34.7 inches.

With above normal snowfall already this year... are we in for a wet spring?

The National Weather Service says that will probably be the case.

Several large storms so far this winter have dumped 46.5 inches of snow in Grand Forks.

A normal yearly snowfall is considered to be 34.7 inches.

The National Weather Service says the temperatures have also been above normal overall for the winter.

Meteorologist Mark Ewens / National Weather Service: "Unfortunately with the ground being frozen it really doesn't have a whole lot of effect on future events because the snow, even if it does start to melt a little bit, is going to stay in one place and really doesn't become critical to the freeze thaw cycle, does not become very critical to us until we get well into March or April."

The National Weather Service says once spring gets here the trends will probably change and that season might be cooler than normal.
