Spring snowfall complicates flood fight as 5 to 8 inches total expected in F-M area


Volunteers who spent Tuesday building dikes in Fargo-Moorhead woke up this morning to find their work blanketed by several inches of snow, and more was falling, further complicating the flood fight.

About 3 inches of snow had fallen by 7 a.m. in the metro area, and the National Weather Service predicts 5 to 8 inches total from Fargo north to Grand Forks before the storm diminishes this evening.

A winter storm warning remains in effect until 3 p.m.
