BISMARCK, N.D. (AP) - The spring blizzard that crossed North Dakota set weather records in Grand Forks and Bismarck.

National Weather Service reports show that Bismarck on Monday set records for the date for rainfall with just over half an inch, and for snow with 8.1 inches. The snowfall smashed the city’s previous March 31 record of 1.6 inches set in 1932. The rainfall record that was broken was set in 1877 - 137 years ago.

Grand Forks set a city snowfall record for the date with 11.5 inches, breaking the 13-year-old record of 4.1 inches.

Grafton received the most snow from the storm - 20 inches. Public schools in that city and many other communities in eastern North Dakota are starting classes late.
