April is Snowiest Month All Winter

Posted: Updated:

The National Weather Service says April has been the snowiest month of the winter for the Fargo area - and that's not good news for officials gearing up for another flood fight. 

Officials say January typically is the snowiest month, but this winter it was the fourth-snowiest. 

As of Friday, 16.4 inches of snow had fallen in the Fargo area this month.

The next-highest total is 14.6 inches in March.

The weather service says this April has been the fourth-snowiest of all time for the Fargo area, with more than a week to go in the month.

Fargo officials are gearing up for what might be the fourth major Red River flood in five years.

The weather service says the river has a 40 percent chance of setting a record.
