The average low temperatures are in the frigid 10°F (-12.2°C) to 15°F (-9.4°C) range, while the average high temperatures are in the cold 33°F (0.6°C) to 41°F (5°C) zone.

January is the driest period in terms of rainfall, but snowfall averages 6" (152mm) to 8" (203mm) in the state. Thermals and fleece serve well for outdoor activities such as sledding and ice skating, while warm coats, gloves, and a hat suffice for regular working days.
