:. North Dakota Weather And Climate .:

With no major bodies of water nearby, North Dakota Weather is dependent upon the artic air currents from the north and tropical air currents from the south to dictate temperature and precipitation. Temperatures tend to be extreme, especially during the cold winters, occasionally moderated by the opposing air currents.

When the air currents clash rain or snow is produced. Blizzards arte more frequent in late fall and early spring, winters trend to be dry. Hail and thunderstorms can occur in the summer when the air currents collide.
