Bismarck Temperature Quirks

If you live in the Bismarck area you may have noticed the temperatures at the airport seem quite high.  Well, the short answer is they likely are.  The airport has been reading 5 to 7 degrees warmer than any other site within 50 miles of the temperature sensor at the Bismarck Airport.  Even with those suspect temperatures, Bismarck, like other locations in the state are no where near the temperatures set in 1936 across the state, many locations are 8 or 9 degrees cooler than what was recorded in the hottest month on record, July 1936.
