Weather in September
brings the beautiful autumn season to North Dakota
. The green prairie, forests, and rivers display fantastic shades of yellow, crimson, orange, and golden colors. The temperatures are in the average range of 42°F (5.6°C) to 74°F (23.3°C).
The precipitation is to the tune of 1" (25mm) to 2" (51mm), and the skies remain mostly clear during the autumn days. The temperatures are pleasant and down from the peak of the summer.
The hunting season is in full swing, and the fishing season draws plenty of interest. Thunderstorms and tornadoes are few compared to the summer. Strong winds sweep the grasslands and vast plains, with scarce refuge for tourists in the form of scattered mountain ranges and steep flattop hills. Long pants are suitable to wear in the grasslands. Early mornings are best for hiking and biking as the air is fresh, and the sunshine is moderate. September is an ideal time to visit the Badlands in North Dakota.
