North Dakota has a continental climate with four distinct seasons. Its average temperature is cool, ranging from 37-43°F (3-6°C). Winters are dry and sometimes bitterly cold, especially in January. However, the state has a longer temperate season than many imagine.

Due to its northern latitude, the sun rises before 6am and sets after 9.30pm. Summers are sunny and can be quite hot at times, and thunderstorms are common, but North Dakota is one of the driest states in the US.
