The climate of Sioux Falls (South Dakota - United States of America)
Sioux Falls is a large city located in the southeastern part of the state of South Dakota on the banks of the Big Sioux River which is a tributary of the Missouri River which forms the natural border with the states of Minnesota and Iowa. The city was founded during the second part of the 19th century and flourished when a railroad was constructed here. Partially due to the lack of a state corporate income tax, Sioux Falls is the home of a number of financial companies. The Washington Pavilion of Arts and Science is situated in Sioux Falls. Sioux Falls has a warm continental climate with extremely cold winters and short but warm summers. Precipitation figures are highest during the summer. Winters are cold. Especially during the night temperatures may drop far below freezing point. During the warmest days of summer temperatures may rise far above 30 degrees Celsius (86 degrees Fahrenheit).
