GRAND FORKS, N.D. (AP) — Parts of North Dakota are in for some early October snowfall.

The National Weather Service has issued a winter weather advisory for the west and central parts of the state late Wednesday and early Thursday, and a winter storm watch for the northern Red River Valley.

Forecasters say as much as 3 inches of snow could fall in some eastern areas by Thursday afternoon. The Dickinson Press reported that snow already was falling in the Grassy Butte area in western North Dakota on Wednesday morning.

The weather service says measurable snow is not all that uncommon in North Dakota this time of year, and snow that accumulates early in the season usually melts.
