Think this has been the weirdest spring weather in memory? You're right.

April snowfall in Detroit Lakes set a new record this year -- 32 inches -- which is more than double the previous record of 15 inches set in April of 1945, according to the National Weather Service in Grand Forks, N.D.


The Detroit Lakes data was collected by KDLM Radio, which maintains an official National Weather Service station outside its facilities north of Detroit Lakes.
