Heavy Rain Setting Records in North Dakota

Posted: Updated:

BISMARCK, N.D. (AP) - Rainy weather is setting records in North Dakota. 

The National Weather Service reports that Bismarck, Dickinson, Jamestown, Grand Forks and Fargo all set daily rainfall records for October 14 on Monday. Fargo had the most rain, with 1.27 inches. Dickinson had 1.2 inches. There also was some scattered light snowfall reported in southwestern North Dakota. 

Recent wet weather has prompted McKenzie County officials to temporarily ban large trucks from gravel and dirt roads until conditions improve. The Dickinson Press reports that Stark County officials are asking for a voluntary shutdown of heavy hauling on rural roads. 

In eastern North Dakota, rain has put a damper on the sugar beet harvest.
