Land of Extremes

You may recall we had some snow in late May in western North Dakota and right after that we had the warmest stretch of weather in June since 1995.  This week, we had frost being reported in some parts of south central and western North Dakota followed by 90s forty-eight hours later.  Yes, the northern plains is a land of extremes.  There are only four other states that have recorded a higher temperature than what has been measured in North Dakota.  Those states are California, Arizona, Nevada and New Mexico. And there are only five states that have recorded a temperature lower than North Dakota.  In other words, extreme weather in this area is par for the course.
