Looks like North Dakota is not the place to live if you dislike extreme weather. I would have never guessed that North Dakota's record high is 121!

Yes, a lot of those 120ish record highs in the plains occured in 1936. Hard to believe NDs hottest day beats Texas.

I lived in ND a few years back, and Bismarck hit 112 while I was there.

-64 for the record low in Minnesota? As far as I know, the low of -60 set on February 2, 1996 in Tower has not yet been exceeded...

Only -17 in Delaware? I know that the climate is heavily influenced by the Atlantic Ocean, but I would assume it'd be lower.

Washington and Oregon are showing records that HAD to have come from the eastern side. The Western side of either state doesn't get that hot nor that cold. Would have been cool if they had separated between the eastern and western sides. Also where are Alaska and Hawaii?

(PS -2 in Florida seems crazy to me!)

Eh, if my map had Alaska and Hawaii on it, I would have included them.

Louisiana has a record low of -16F whereas England, further north than the whole of the lower 48 only has a record low of -15F! Florida also has a lower low than Northern Ireland at about 55N. Got to love that Gulf Stream And our record high is 100, lower than anywhere in the US, and lower than most regions in Canada for that matter.

-17 is really low for a coastal location. It's quite a bit south of NYC, and the NYC are really gets negative temps. I don't remember a negative temperature ever when in Long Island, though a -1 or -2 probably sneaked in. The record for NYC is -15 but that was a very long time ago. Delaware is on a peninsula on the coast, so I'm surprised it could get as low as it did.
