The National Weather Service says the Grand Forks airport had 8.1 inches of snow yesterday, setting a record for the date. And Fargo set a record with 5.9 inches.

The previous mark in both cities was set back in 1926.

Grand Forks and Fargo also had record snowfall last Saturday.

Today's forecast calls for a chance of light snow in the west and flurries in central North Dakota, and a little snow overnight in the east. The southwest could get some freezing rain tonight.

Further down the road the National Weather Service says southern North Dakota could get up to two inches of snow on Saturday. And colder weather is moving in, with low temperatures on Saturday dropping to the teens below zero in some regions.
