The climate of Pierre (South Dakota - United States of America)
Pierre has a population figure just short of 15,000 and is the capital of South Dakota, a state located centrally in the northern part of the United States. Pierre is located on the east banks of the Missouri River. Across the river the smaller city of Fort Pierre is located. Besides the South Dakota State Capitol Pierre offers no big attractions. Most tourists visit Pierre because of Lake Oahe, which is famous among anglers. Pierre has a warm continental climate (type Dfa). The climate can be classified as such because of the warm months July and August in which average 24 hour temperatures are well above the required 22 degrees Celsius (72 degrees Fahrenheit). During the summer daytime temperatures may easily rise up to 30-35 degrees Celsius (86-95 degrees Fahrenheit). During a heat wave temperatures may rise up to 40 degrees Celsius (104 degrees Fahrenheit). Pierre has four distinct seasons with cold to extremely cold winters. During these long and dry winters temperatures of -20 degrees Celsius (-4 degrees Fahrenheit) can be recorded during 22 nights. Only small amounts of snow fall within 24 hours. Only during a few days per winter 5-10 centimeters of snowfall can be recorded within 24 hours.
