Fargo Moorhead has recorded only 1.6 inches of snow so far this month with no measurable snow foreseen this week, this will mean March 2017 will rank as the 20th least snowy March on record.  It will also be the 4th March in a row at that location recording very little snow during the month of March.  In fact, it will be the 4th winter in a row with Fargo recording under 40 inches of snow, the first time that has occurred since the 1960s. Although this current snow season will likely finish below average for snowfall, it is not finishing below normal for precipitation as there has been several noticeable rain events this cold season keep the Red River Valley wet.
