    I've always wondered which is the coldest state in the winter, these ones that border Canada?

  • AllTimeJeff

    North Dakota, I think.

    I was in Michigan for 10 years. Snowed a lot, but being surrounded by the lakes actually kept the temperatures somewhat warmer. States to the North and West of Michigan are generally colder....

    ok what's the coldest part of Canada?

    We don't live in igloos here in Canada you know :) Southern Ontario is same latitude as northern California. Sourthern Ontario is humid and summers are hot so Michigan would not be cold by any means. Washington is on the coast and similar weather to southern BC which has wild winters. Montana I know is cold but they might get chinooks like southern Alberta which would give them a nice break during winter but that I'm not 100% certain of and I know parts of Idaho are crazy cold because of their high elevation but so are parts of Colorado. So out of the once I know I would guess either Montana or Idaho are the coldest.

    I'm from northern Wisconsin, and it gets plenty cold here. But North Dakota I think feels even colder because it tends to be very windy there. The more continental areas will be colder since large bodies of water will moderate temperatures.

    i suspect nodak is the coldest, altho international falls, mn

    i have had more than one neighbour to the north tell me
    winnepeg manitoba is the coldest part of the country...
    goes by the moniker "winterpeg, mani-snow-ba"
    ( i suspect nunavut has a quarrel with that)

    I lived in Wisconsin for a few years. In fact, that's where I left the dubs. Sorry I missed you guys while I was up there.

    I live in Seattle. Western Washington is pretty mild most of the year, due to the ocean. Eastern Washington gets cold in the winter and hot in the summer. The mountains in the middle can get seriously cold.

    International Falls, Minnesota is the coldest city in the USA in the Wintertime. Google it out.
