The National Weather Service said it had reports of 2 inches of snow on the ground in Bowman at midafternoon. Forecasters expected an inch or two in the Dickinson area, with up to an inch overnight in Bismarck. Overnight lows were expected to drop into the upper 20s in the far-western part of the state.
The heavy snow over the past winter was not enough to put some fields out of the danger of drought, re-searchers said.
At the Agricultural Research Center in Mandan, 100 inches of snow was recorded in test fields. While one field showed moisture at least 4 feet deep, another field a few feet away showed moisture only about 2 1/2 feet deep.
Agriculture officials say North Dakota farmers have made little progress on field work because many cannot get to their fields.
The weekly state crop report said much of the state still has significant snow cover.
Heavy snow in the west and rain in the east are likely to further delay North Dakota’s already-late corn and sunflower harvests, possibly keeping some corn farmers in their fields into next year.
“It all depends on when this shakes out and when we get a little sunshine back,” said Larry Kleingartner, executive director of the Bismarck-based National Sunflower Association.
