GRAND FORKS, N.D. (AP) — The National Weather Service says an early season storm dumped record amounts of snow in some areas of North Dakota.

The Weather Service's Grand Forks office reported 3.5 inches of snow with Thursday's storm. The previous record snowfall for that date or earlier was 2 inches, which fell on Oct. 2, 1950.

The heaviest snow fell in Roseau County, where about a foot of heavy, wet snow was reported by 3 p.m. Thursday. Pembina received about 4 inches, while Lankin, Michigan and Mayville each received more than 3 inches.

The 1950 storm produced 2 to 5 inches of snow across the region, with localized higher amounts. The North Dakota town of Leeds received 7 inches of snow that day.
