Return to Normal Temperatures 

MINOT – The Minot region should see some relief this week from what has been one of the coldest December months in recorded history. 

Tuesday’s weather forecast calls for a high temperature in the mid-30s, quite a difference from a lengthy stretch of icy temperatures and bitter wind chills. Wednesday high is expected to be 31 degrees before dipping a bit Thursday into the mid-20s. Then, through New Year’s Day, the daytime high for the Minot area is expected to be about 20 degrees above zero. 

Average daytime highs for this week in Minot is 24 degrees but, coming off the cold snap, will likely seem unseasonably warm. Winds are expected to be light too with no “dangerous” wind chills in the most recent weather outlook. 

No matter how the thermometer behaves this week, December of 2022 is destined to leave its mark as one of the coldest Decembers since official record keeping began in 1905.  

As of December 25, the average temperature in Minot for this month was 5.6 degrees, 13.4 degrees below normal. Snowfall for the month through the same period was 15.9 inches. That compares to a 10.1 inch average for the entire month of December.
