South Dakota broke records for the month of March. Several cities were 80-81 degrees! In fact this was hotter than the 78 degrees I got in south FL and I was plenty hot! I would have been miserable in SD on that record breaking day

It's a lot dryer in South Dakota than it is in Florida. The lower humidity makes temperature changes less noticeable.

We always had a/c and the warmth was actually welcomed after a cold winter. It will get cold again and you will have snow again even up to and including May and possibly early June! It only annoyed me that the flies would wake up in the heat and try to get into the house! It's really not that bad and it's amazing that the flowers will start to come and continue to grow even if it snows again!

NAH, like the others said, it's not as humid here as it is in Florida. West River is actually considered to be a semi-arid climate. East River, where I live, has a lot more humidity then the West does. It was about 10 degrees warmer out west then here, but we hit near 70 or so. It was beautiful. We could actually turn our furnace off and I got to wear shorts to work.

Today is also a beautiful day here and we're supposed to hit about 67, but tonight it's supposed to be 38 and the next two days will be in the low 40s for a high. We're also supposed to have a bit of rain and snow showers for the next two mornings. Fla really is much hotter at 80 then it is here though. We don't have too much of a heat index. Every time we go to Florida and get outside the airport, I just love the feel of the humidity there. Even during the summer days, our humidity is still lower then it is down there. You should come on up cause I think you'd like the weather we're having now. Oh and unfortunately, we didn't break any records in eastern So. Dak. It was more central and west.

Wish I had the money to come visit. I would love to visit SD and visit you for a week or longer get away from hot humid south FL and enjoy your mild weather. 70 degrees without all the humidity is beautiful, id imagine. Not too hot so im glad to hear you are not sweating it out nor melting

Do you have space for guests if I visit SD and you? How high do you turn the heat? I might become too hot in your house. Comfortable is 60 to 72 degrees

Busy, it's a bit warmer there then it is over here. I just checked and we hit 68 yesterday. It's 5pm and we have 63 right now, but it was a bit warmer earlier.

According to records, Mitchell's record for a high was set in 1900 and it was 76 degrees. The record low was minus 23 set in 1956. The record high for Hot Springs was set yesterday at 83. Their past record was 81 set in 1995. Hot Spring's record for cold on the 12th was minus 10 set in 1950. Those are just the record highs and lows for March 12.

NAH, come on up. I've got an empty couch. Right now we aren't running anything except turning on the furnace at night because it'll get in the 30s and gets a bit chilly. But during the day the sunlight shines in the deck and in the bay window and keeps it very comfy in there. When it's cold we have our furnace set on 67 or 68, but right now keeping it at 62 overnight works out just fine.
