Episode Narrative Upper level high pressure centered over the Central Plains, coupled with persistent low pressure over the Rockies, brought a prolonged period of above seasonal temperatures and high humidity to west and central North Dakota. Daytime temperatures in the 90s combined with the high humidity to produce heat index values well over 100 degrees for many locations for several days. Heat index values topped out between 110 and 120 degrees, not a common thing in North Dakota.
Although no human life was lost and no injuries were reported, there were livestock losses associated with the heat. It is estimated that up to 700 head of cattle died from the heat wave. Estimated at near 1,000 dollars per head, monetary damages are estimated at near 700,000 dollars. A detailed breakdown by county was not available so the losses were all assigned to one county in southwest North Dakota, Slope.
