Published 12/29/2009, Grand Forks Herald
31 inches in 1996 surpass Alvin’s 25.1 inches
Weather service workers are starting to analyze where the storm’s snowfall total fits in with Grand Forks records, but it won’t be No. 1. A blizzard that Ewens said resembled an “inland hurricane” dumped a total of 27.8 inches on the city March 2-5, 1966.
