On Saturday, Bismarck tied the record low daily maximum at minus 13 degrees, a record set in 1874, according to the National Weather Service.

Other cities across North Dakota also tied and two cities — Jamestown and Minot — broke their record low daily maximum temperatures, according to Ken Simosko, National Weather Service Bismarck meteorologist. 

Jamestown broke the record low daily maximum with a high of minus 18 degrees on Saturday. Previously, the record low daily maximum was minus 14 degrees set in 1968.

Minot also broke the previous record low daily maximum with a high of minus 19 degrees on Saturday. The previous record was minus 16 set in 1968.

Dickinson tied its record low daily maximum of minus 14 in 1911, and Williston also tied the record low daily maximum of minus 16 degrees in 1911.

Frigid temperatures are expected to continue in Bismarck on Sunday, beginning with a brisk minus 28 degrees in the morning and minus 8 for a high, according to Simosko.

The weather should return to at or above normal temperatures with highs in the low 20s next weekend, Simosko said.
