That's what makes it so very impressive....




But still pales in comparison to temps of the Dust Bowl Northern Plains states....


Napoleon North Dakota is located at 46.5N and Linton is at 46.2N. Average high of 102F/38.9C.




Uploaded with ImageShack.us

And of course Steele (46.9N) hit 121F/49.4C that summer... Blows any temperature record at that latitude out of the sky....

Napoleon's average high is lower (83F) so it's even more impressive.

Temperatures aren't bad for peak summer and peak winter but I prefer warmer shoulder seasons and about three times as much precipitation. I give it a C +.

Winter is too cold and long, and overall too dry. Summer and spring are good.

Not bad for Russia but still too cold in winter to get higher than a C+. Summer temps are excellent but a little too warm in July and it's a little drier than ideal imo.

E+. Apr-Oct is good, but the horror winter from Nov-Mar ruins it all.
