  • Not sure what you're saying dx, but ...

    The highest temperature ever recorded in North Dakota was 121 ?F in Steele on July 6, 1936.
    The lowest temperature ever recorded in North Dakota was -60? F at Parshall on February 15, 1936.

    They're missing the unique "180 to 190F" color band.

    (Parshall and Steele are about 150 miles apart.)

    • I'm saying North Dakota isn't special. A fifth of the continent experiences what North Dakota does, including Minnesota.

      ONe note. I should have used this one. This is the median rather than the 10th percentile. 90% if you care.



      North Dakota does have the US record:

      "Yes. For a single station, 176°F at Parshall,ND, (1936) is the U.S. record."

        I thought somewhere in Montana had that record for the lower 48. Lucky Parshall, or not, I guess.

        Back to original, Handy commented on wild temp swings this spring. To me that's all it's been this spring/summer is wild swings.

        • Swings are to be expected, it is more the nature of the swings and when they are happening. We all expect ridiculous fluctuations in March, April and May but but a drop of 40 degrees in June is not expected. I mean we were at 96 degrees (with crazy heat indexes) June 10th and this morning in was in the 50s.

          It isn't Earth shattering but it is weird.

            265 is the difference between the highest and lowest surface temperatures ever recorded on this planet. 176 for one place is amazing.

              That was just raw temp. I have to imagine the wind chill to heat index range was closer to 200. Which is incredible. I'd be curious to see what's happening to something like the median* annual difference over time.


              I guess I'm not sure that's particularly useful over time. Are these swings getting generally wider? Certainly hotter on the high end. But how are the two tails moving?

                1936 must have sucked extra for Parshallers (ites?). Record heat, record cold, dust bowl depression, flat then as now . . . .

                I would include a biggie, Hitler abrogating the Versailles Treaty, but I'm not sure Parshallers were watching.

                    They probably lost their last tree that year too. Thanks for piling on.

                      I'll have to check with my dad, but I think my grandfather still owned the pharmacy in Parshall, ND, in 1936.
                      That community is already in the process of dissolution where each man begins to eye his neighbor as a possible enemy, where non-conformity with the accepted creed, political as well as religious, is a mark of disaffection; where denunciation, without specification or backing, takes the place of evidence; where orthodoxy chokes freedom of dissent; where faith in the eventual supremacy of reason has become so timid that we dare not enter our convictions in the open lists, to win or lose.

                          Cool. How far does your family date back in the state? Did they directly settle there from {Your Nordic Country Here} or relocate from the east?

                            For me, at least 1898 (dad's mom's dad* came here with his family as a 14 year old).
                            They became immediate land barrens ... meaning they moved to some of the most barren land in north central ND.



                            *I can trace that line back to 1800s Ukraine/Crimea and 1600s Germany.
