    There are a huge range for temperatures in this area. Winters can be -10 and summers can be 100 regularly. Summers are usually bright and sunny, but thunderstorms are common. Tornadoes can occur, but they usually are small twisters and are not a huge threat. Winters commonly have a few snowstorms that cause school cancelations.
