North Dakota Climate


Did you know that parts of North Dakota have the widest temperature range in the world outside of Siberia? That's why when North Dakotans go just about anywhere else, they can impress the people with tales of frightful cold and stifling heat. And September is one of our strangest months; heat is left over from the summer, but at the same time winter wants to creep in. And our tornado and thunderstorm seasons do their best to also stick around. So, remember to dress in layers, and give yourself a pat on the back for being prepared for anything – just like the rugged North Dakota pioneers and Native Americans of yesteryear.
