You know, I've noticed this before when looking at the weather map. You're usually much warmer then we are right here, but it's 55 here now. BUT the thing I've noticed is that the Hills are often warmer then you are. I just checked and it's 66 degrees there right now.

i've always wondered, what makes the black hills so warm, a common person would think that beacuse they are higher in elevation they are cooler, but what effect makes them so warm?

Same with LA. If it's about 75*-80* at the beach, our Santa Monica Mountains usually are about 80*-90*. I remember one heat wave last winter, it was 84* at the beach, but I had a tennis tournament at the Riviera Country Club in Beverly Hills. (Yes that's the one that the million and billionaires are part of...my team won though) It's in the mountains, but it was like 98* there. I thought I was gonna die from the heat. I mean, 98* at the beach is perfect, but not to play tennis in.

About LA reaching the 90's in the winter, I remember when I was in 4th grade, so about six years ago, the temperature at the beach in February was 96* while inland was only in the 80's. It's so cool when that happens, except that means there's Santa Ana winds which bring fires.

Jammie, what city do you live in again? And I don't know SD that well, so what cities are warmer that are up in the hills?

Jammie, what city do you live in again? And I don't know SD that well, so what cities are warmer that are up in the hills?
DX, I really don't know why it's warmer out in the Hills. The only thing I know is that the Hot Springs area has underground aquafiers and that's what keeps that area warm. But it's nothing for Rapid to be 20 degrees warmer then it is here. Rapid is sort of in a valley and is protected from the winds, too. Maybe Danny will come along and see your question cause he lives in Rapid.


Jesse, I live in Mitchell. It's pretty much in southeastern So. Dak~about 70 miles west of Sioux Falls and 70 miles east of Chamberlain and the Missouri River. Rapid can have 70 degrees and Sioux Falls can have 30 degrees. It's kinda odd. We have humidity over here, but West River has a semi-arid climate. Rapid City is the big city in the western part of our state. Then there's Deadwood/Lead which is actually in a gulch. Remember hearing about Deadwood Gulch on westerns or in movies? Well, it REALLY is in a gulch, but they dropped that part of the name years ago. There are a lot of smaller towns out there~Spearfish, Sturgis (Sturgis Motorcycle Rally), Keystone, (cute little town at the base of Mt. Rushmore, Custer, Hill City, etc. It really is a beautiful area out there, BUT they still get winter. The length of our state is probably just a bit over 400 miles. I live about 250 miles east of Rapid.

Oh yea, and just so I stay on topic, it actually hit 55 degrees here today.

Woke up this morning to -20 here again, but it made it all the way to 34 by late afternoon. No snow, but they are calling for 4" tonight and into tomorrow, with maybe 12" this week-end.

Yea, they're by a town called Hot Springs, too. You can swim in Evans Plunge which is natural, warm spring water. It's supposed to be good for arthritis and other things. Sort of like the fountain of youth.
